Unforgettable cousin and friend

Shared by Eloica Irma Smith on July 20, 2019

It was only yesterday that we dashed off to the river to splash and enjoy our summers together in the valley followed by a meandering walk with Granny  Ada to Pomona. Unforgettable days I will always cherish and hold dear to my heart.  You were the quiet one with the puppy dog eyes and infectious laughter. Family was instilled in us at and you lived it! Your journey through life was shorter but you excelled; be it in family or your business experiences. I am sad, but I know that you have gone ahead to build spread-sheets and coordinate those monthly  meetings to keep the farm and the family functioning. Your joy and love will continue to bind us all and keep our family united and strong - one unit, impenetrably ,indivisible and fused with the passion and joys of life.

Till we meet again my dear cuz......... I love you,

As I read through all of the beautiful tributes to Wayne, I echo and share many of the same stories and feelings expressed by so many who knew and loved him.  A true gentleman, a loving family man, friend and mentor… Like many of his colleagues, I also had the pleasure of meeting and working with Wayne 29 years ago at Castelazo and Associates. Through the years Wayne was always the calm voice of reason, believed in solutions over criticism, led by example through his love for life and glass-half-full attitude, and blessed us regularly with his infectious smile and laughter.  Thank you, Wayne.

1 Thessalonians 14:13-18

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

I met you for the 1st time in Orange Walk Town on my family home verandah.   Eventhough I was only 16 yrs old, you greeted me with a big hug and said you were my Auntie Lar boyfriend.  Of course exactly 30 yrs later entered my heart with love, respect, honor but most importantly great advice.  To me you're not only my uncle, but I chose you as not one but two of my children's Godfather.  There's not a day that goes by since July 8th 2019 that I don't cry for you. Fortunately,  for me on July 13th you whispered in my ear don't cry "Pinky" I'm ok I  have so many unanswered questions but I know only time will heal.  At first I was in denial, but I've now arrived at the acceptance stage.  I will miss you greeting me in your kitchen asking me if I want a drink. There's absolutely nothing right now that can comfort my broken heart.  I know there will always be a grey sky in our family.  Keep on resting in peace my absolutely extraordinary,  one of a kind, 1% shy of being perfect.  I miss you tons Uncle Wayne...

Wanted to share my warm thoughts with Wayne’s loving family. He was, for so many years, a co-worker and always a friend. I know that the other members of Castelazo family, will share my feelings. Wayne was a valued part of the success of many of us, and a friend and supporter. I could always count on Wayne’s council and support. Will remember him 

A true good Spirit amongst us.

Wayne was an incredible soul that with his smile and good nature made it possible to remind yourself that goodness truly surrounds us. Especially when he walked into a room. His smile while greeting you in the morning will never be forgotten, his genuine interest in people and their individual lives was met with much comfort as you knew once you meet him he was then”real deal’.

Wayne walked his talk and had the respect of all of his coworkers, clients and friends at Castelazo and Associates. 

Truly a remarkable man with so much goodness in his heart. 

May GOD comfort his family and friends during this most difficult time while bringing to them courage, strength and peace while giving Wayne a time now to RIP.
