I am so sorry about Wayne's passing.I worked with him @ American Homepatient he was a driver delivery guy. I am truly in debted to him. He could make you smile and laugh. Now where he really has a special memory is when I tripped to answer the phone one day at work and I ended breaking a bone in my foot and he set me up with a wheelchair to get around the office and the best part was he would come and pick me and my crutches up for work everyday and it was for weeks. I was sad when he wasn't working there any more, but one day last year or better I am a walker and I was walking down an alley towards Reed street and I looked on this porch and looked @ the gentleman on the porch and I kept looking and it was Wayne. I couldn't believe it. I hadn't seen him for a long time and I was so glad to see him. It was cold we didn't talk for long but I remember that time and that being the last time on this side of heaven. May God bless you all for Wayne's passing and my prayers are with you. Ruth
