  18. Nancy and Soyring family,

    I was so troubled to learn of Wayne’s passing. I cherish the memories of trying to beat you guys in volleyball even if I usually lost. I feel privileged to have the chance to meet you and Wayne. I met your 2 oldest girls a few times back in those days and I think what you’ve done with foster care and adoption is an inspiration to us all. All of my love and God’s blessings to you and your family. Dan Hauschild

  19. To the Soyring family:
    So so sorry to hear of the loss of Wayne. I have such vivid memories of traveling basketball with Dani (Strand) and what great memories they are. Wayne was such a positive influence to so many. Sending you prayers and hugs during this difficult time.

  20. I’m so very sorry for your loss. My family used to live in Moorhead and one day i got a flat tire and Wayne stopped and fixed it for me. He was wearing his Sherwin Williams shirt and from that day forward i never bought paint from any other company. You could tell he had a big heart.
    We also went to St. Joseph’s Church and would every now and then sit behind your family. I don’t even think he remembered fixing my tire when he saw me at church cus I’m sure he was always doing good deeds for everyone. Your whole family will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you.

  21. Thank You for the beautiful Video. I missed seeing Wayne at Dialysis weekly but this video brought back such sweet fun moments with Wayne and his humor.
