    Fargo To all of Wayne’s family, I am so sorry to hear of Wayne’s death and not to have known till today. Wayne was a very dear friend to me and my children. He watched out for us when we lived by ourselves in the country and we shared fun times with our kids, fishing in the summer and sledding in the winter. He was always there when we needed him whether it was to protect us from fears or to join us for bonfires and happy times. We lost touch over the years but have often talked about him and wondered how he fared. Mary Rose and Dacotah remember him well. I wish we could have been there for him as he was for us.

    Valley NebraskaWayne,
    It was extremely hard to see you leave us this weekend. I have found comfort knowing you are no longer suffering and in a much better place watching over the rest of us that have been left behind. You were like a second father to me and I will always cherish the fun memories and adventures we had together during the 30 years I got to share with you.
    When I think of you, I will smile and remember the laughs and jokes we shared and our times walking together on the beach in Mexico picking up sea shells for hours on end- we both had a love for that!!
    Your laughter and your sense of adventure and having a good time is something I will miss deeply. I know you will be watching over your son Shawn, my father Clay, me and all of those you loved. Rest in peace.

    I was so sorry when I heard about Wayne’s passing. I’m glad that his suffering is over, but he was way too young to have to go through what he went through.

    To Wayne’s Family: Please call if there is anything I can do for you.

    God Bless Wayne’s memory.
