|I always loved Wayne and thought he and I could've been close had other issues not stood in the way. He was a wonderful man who loved his children, his grandchildren, biological or not, and was always thrilled to see us coming to visit. I wish things could've been different and I could've seen him again. He knows I loved him. He is in Heaven with his son and my Mother, his brother, sister, Mother and many wonderful friends he accumulated over the years and is the happiest he has ever been. I am deeply sorry for his family and their loss. It is never easy though we know they are far better off where they are than where they were...suffering. I Love you, Grandpa Wayne! |
