  4. Jim Cole says:

    I knew Wayne through his Masonic work. Wayne served as Worshipful Master of his Lodge in 2001, the year I was serving as Grand Master. We met a year or so earlier and we met several times in the subsequent years. He was a very fine person and one who clearly impacted his community and those around him. I know he will be missed, but I know he is now enjoying rest in a far better community. Sincerely, Jim Cole

  5. Jamye Cooper says:

    Please accept my sincere sympathy on the recent loss of your dear loved one. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the God of comfort be with you in this time of sorrow. May these words bring you hope, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) This promise will be fulfilled one day, until then, may all your memories sustain you in the days to come.
