I am sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. I worked at the hospital when he worked at the health department. We worked together for the good of patients. He was an excellent medical technologist and a caring person. He will be missed.

So sorry for your loss. May you find hope and comfort in God's word at John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15. It is an assured promise from God.

Oh how I miss... my mom's better half, the man who brought me to the foot of the cross and saw my sins be forgiven there, my disciplinarian, my counselor, my confidant, the man who married me to my Christian wife, our guide in marriage, my wife's comic relief, my son's papaw, my friend, my dad! Praise God you are home in Heaven! I'll love you forever dad....Jack
