    Dear Cindy, so sorry for your loss. Wayne was a good guy I know he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  2. To the family, my deepest sympathy goes to you. The Bible can be a true source of comfort in times like these. We have a wonderful hope of a resurrection to earth in Acts 24:15. Revelation 21:3-5 gives us a beautiful promise for our future when Jehovah God does away with all causes of suffering including, pain, mourning and death. I hope these scriptures can bring some comfort.
