    I grew up with Wayne, he was a great person! He always joked with me about being an old lady. His birthday is in July and mine is in December, so on his birthday till December we were the same age, then I was older than him till July again. He loved joke around all the time and was always happy. You will be missed dearly. You’ll always be in my heart. I love you brother!!
