I am shocked and saddened to hear of Wayne's passing. He was always such a good and happy man. I extend my heartfelt condolences to Marjorie, Brian, Tammy and the rest of the Wheeler family. Those we love don't go away they walk beside us every day unseen, unheard but always near still loved still missed and very dear. May God give you strength in the difficult days and months ahead. Tears are prayers too. They travel to God when we can't speak. Keeping you all close in my thoughts & prayers.
