    Mr. Wayne was such a good man. His smile lit up the room when he walked in. I know his life was difficult these last years with his mind, but I choose to remember the man who would come running to help anytime someone was in need and the man who loved God and his family and friends fiercely. May God bless you all at this difficult time is my prayer.

    Mr Wayne was a great man. I remember going to his house with Mom and they would sing. He was just fun to be around. Him and mom and JR Haygood are singing and having a big time. Love you Tim and Connie. May God put his loving arms around you and give you comfort.

  9. Eddie Addison Says:

    Brother Wayne was a wonderful person. Our prayers are with his family that remains behind. He was the very image of a Christian man. He will be missed.

  10. Dale Colclasure Says:

    Loss of a great man and a cousin. Definitely not the same Wayne these last few years but my memories are of the real Wayne, a loving, friendly, cheerful, full of life man. Tim and Connie so sorry for your loss and prayers for you.

  11. Billy and Gail Booth Says:

    One can only guess how many lives that Bro. Wayne influenced in his lifetime. With his smile and engaging personality, he was at ease talking with anyone and they were at ease taking to him. I worked with Bro. Wayne at the Post Office and we all looked forward each day to his cheery smile and his delicious morning coffee that he made for all of us. During the time of Bro. Wayne’s employment there, several temporary transfer clerks came and went. I couldn’t help but notice how that Bro. Wayne gently and effectively witnessed to them about His Lord. He was a gentle giant in the Lord’s work with his extraordinary interpersonal communication skills, his sincere interest in the welfare of others, and his remarkable singing voice. He and Sister Janie were very much loved at our church because they showed their love for the Lord and for others. Their cherished legacies will continue. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance in this time of sorrow to this respected family. We are thankful that God gives believers victory over death through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our prayers continue for this wonderful family.

    Wayne was my first good friend and playmate on a farm between Lonoke and Carlisle. He was two years older than me so he was the one to hook the pony up to the buggy so we could take water to the men working in the fields. So much fun in our day, the early 1940s. My thoughts and prayers are with you and God Bless.
