  1. Mark and Terri,

    I am so sorry to hear about your dad! I have read post on FB, he had not been feeling well. It’s so hard to say goodbye but he is no longer in pain. Remembering Wayne, he would not be happy not being able to go and enjoy life. He was the light of your “Granny’s ” life. I’m sure she was waiting for him with open arms. You and your families are in my prayers.

    Some of my earliest memories are of staying with Lucille McNeil . Wayne and my brother Steve Hogg were lifelong friends and stayed in contact. Wayne and I were in contact on FB and his love for his family was first. He will be missed. Sending prayers for comfort for his family. Hellen Fitzgerald

  3. I first met Wayne on Dec. 31st 1963 when he and 3 other couples rang my door bell and came to celebrate the New Year’s. Rita and I had been in Lubbock for 3 days when that happened. We developed a friendship that has lasted for 56 years. Wayne was a special friend to Rita and I and shared many, many good times together. I could write a book about some of our experiences. Too many to share in this space but memories that will be cherished and shared with others. RIP my friend and know that someday we will meet again and can reminisce about all our good times.

  4. Mark and Terri: So sorry for the loss of your daddy, Wayne. I have enjoyed being on Facebook with Wayne for the last two years, hearing about you two kids. I have fond memories of you two when you we’re small. I loved your whole family and missed them when we moved away. Our prayers are with you both and your family.

    Nancy, love for Nancy and your entire family. I came to know Wayne as a devoted family man – always kind and ready to pitch in with a great sense of humor.

    We will miss him greatly. You are very loved by Terri and Mark and I hope you will still be part of our family – we think of you as family.

    God bless.
