Wayne was one of seven children. For my sisters and I the one thing we remember the most was he never forgave us for cutting his hair when he was little. He always said we were the cause his cowlick and would never accept that it was there from the time he was born. He was a most kindhearted and loving man who always offered to help others. He was faithful in calling his family and friends to keep in touch and know what was happening in their lives as well. We will miss his smile, his kindheartedness and his love. May the angels walk with you today and always. Love from your sisters, Ann, Betty, June
