    Mr. Wynn was more than a brother in Christ, he was a mentor. A man I looked up to and was always willing to listen and pray for me. I will always cherish the memories: his famous Wynn burgers, Youth Rallies, and of course leading the congregation in worship. God took a good man home to heaven and I rest easy at night imagining him sitting with his children. I know my mom is there, too. Mrs. Jane, I love you and I'm continously praying for you during this difficult time.

    Mr. Wynn was a great man who allowed people he barely knew to come to his home and hide out during a hurricane. He cuddled my girls and allowed us the pleasure of getting to know him. I wish we could have known him longer. He will be greatly missed.

    Wynn was one of the joyous people I met at church and loved getting one of his big hugs and hearing his booming wonderful voice with his daughter, Wendy, at church. Love this whole family to pieces and Wynn will be truly missed!! Always thinking of you Jane and your continuous strength and faith!
