    My deepest condolences to the family. Though I have not talked with Wayne in some years, this news brought back the years past when Wayne, Jeff, James, Will, Rick, me (Marvin), and Bo hung out as young teenagers going skating. We were all young men navigating life, Wayne had the simplest smile with an unforgettable laugh. My brother you will be missed. Now you are with God and your heavenly family.
    Be at peace.
