    What a patient, kind man was Wayne, through all of his illness he fought the strong fight. Now he is pain free and resting. Our prayers and thoughts are with Yvonne, Jarod, Lindsay and all the family may the peace that only God can give, surround you all. He has gone to a better place, but will not be forgotten. Love Lots. Zada & Donald
