I will always remember Wayne with fond memories. He always bought bubble gum for Sandra at the Company Store each week. Would come and tell me I had to have his bubble gum or he would be in the dog house.
Saw him just recently at Walmart - was always a pleasure to talk to. He will be missed by many. Prayers to you all at this sad time. Celeste White
