The loss of Uncle Wayne brings great sadness but then I remind myself he is now with dad (Bill Harper) and a much better place. We shall all meet again. My deepest sympathy to all of Uncle Wayne's loved ones. May God be with you all in this difficult time.

Uncle Wayne,

My memory is long of sitting on you swing, talking about the hummingbird that visited you, fishing, gardening, family and always entrusting me with your four wheeler. I had so many fun times when I visited with you. Alsi, thank you for helping us, transitition to Kentucky, when we where young. Thank you!
