    Dear Jane, Gabby and the Hair family: I met Wynn around 2005 and I found him to be the most kind and jovial man! I could tell right away that he loved is Lord, his family and his neighbor. He walked the walk and wasn't just ALL talk. I enjoyed conversations with him during health visits about his mission travels and his love of his family. He inspired me to do mission travel as well, which I hope to do one day! Jane, I know you are going to miss this wonderful man that you both have stood together through a LOT of pain! He will forever no doubt be looking down on you and the rest of your family as an angel of God. Love and condolences to you all!

    Before cell phones, before GPS, we were taking the kids to a youth rally in Kernersville. I had the boys in my car. We were on I-40 between Raleigh and Durham, it was dark, pouring rain, there were concrete barricades along the road, and it was around rush hour. I was following Wynn in his car and had to memorize the shape of his taillights in order to keep up with him in traffic. I will follow you anywhere, Wynn!

    So sorry to hear of Mr. Wynn’s passing. He was a very inviting and kind man the few times I was able to meet him and spend any time with him. He loved his family. He will be dearly missed! Praying for you all in this difficult time!
