My heart hurts so much for Agnes and my friends, Jackie, Cricket and Sandy. Wayne was loved by all and I know he will be missed daily. My thoughts are with you all on this sad journey.
This has been the most difficult thing I have ever gone through. I can’t comprehend that he’s actually not going to be coming back home. He was the glue of this family and will continue to be, we only have to listen to hear him tell us were doing it all wrong, lol, bc I know he will let it be known. I miss him so badly and will every day. Thank you Robin and we love you. Love,

Joyce and family, so sorry for your loss. Love and prayers. Billy and Cordelia
