Being a friend of your Mothers Ginny, for the past three years, I feel like I knew both you and Wayne. Your Mom would share Wayne’s pain and concerns in our chatting and email. Prayers were always for both you and Wayne. Now at this time we pray for comfort and peace, in Wayne’s passing.

I just wanted to personally say how sorry I am for the loss of your husband, Wayne. I know this must be the most difficult time of your life. You and Wayne had a very special and enduring love. Larry and I appreciate all that you did for him during the course of his illness, especially these last few days. Wayne knew that you truly loved him, and I know that was an incredible comfort to him. He will always be there with you and for you, even if he is not present in the physical sense. I have strong feelings about the afterlife, and I do believe that our loved ones continue to watch over us in spirit. Please try to “hang in there”, and if you need ANYTHING at all, please do not hesitate to “holler”, ’cause we’ll come “a-runnin'”.
Lana and Larry
hi sam hope you are doing ok. im sorry he passed away, but he isnt in pain anymore. if you need anything dont hesitate to call.
I am so sorry to have just recently heard about the loss of your husband, Wayne. Your mother and I are dear friends and I have had the pleasure of meeting you a few times, although I have never had the opportunity to meet your husband. I know this is a time when the pain goes so deep and the tears never seem to dry. Just know as time goes by, they will be replaced with inside smiles of times pasted in how you choose to remember all those special moments… and that’s really what will help heal and allow you to continue to celebrate life on his behalf. Know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerly, Ann
I realize that I did not know Wayne that well, but from what I did know he seemed like a really great guy. It seems that with life in America these days we don’t take the time to get to know some of the truly wonderful people we encounter, and that is the real loss at times like this. We reflect on the choices we have made, and it seems what we regret most is not our failure to acquire possesions, but our poverty in relationships that enhance our lives. I am sorry for your loss, Sam, and I am sorry that I no longer have the opportunity to have known a great man. I envy you because you had the life enriching experience to have known him better than I did.
I was so sorry to hear that Wayne had passed away. He and I shared a close friendship years ago. Our lives had taken us down separate paths, but I’ll always remember him as a great friend.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
With deepest sincerity,
Maybe no one will read this since Wayne has been gone almost 10 years but I have been trying off and on for the past 20 years to contact him. I lived with Wayne and his family on Bonney Road when I was in the Navy Stationed in Norfolk from 1967 to 1970. Wayne was one of the best freinds I ever had and was so sorry to hear of his death. Knowing Wayne he was a great father and husband. Sorry for your loss.
Sam I am very sorry to hear of your lost.You are in my prayers.
Sam We are so sorry, please remember -our prayers are with you and your family.
Sam we are sorry to hear you lost your husband and best friend you had in the world. Doug and I want to let you know that our thoughts and prayers have and are with you and your family always. Our memories of Wayne will always be held dear in our hears. We will miss him.
Sam, I just had to sign. This has been a hard week for all of us. I’m so proud of you and how you took such good care of Wayne. Your love for him during these past years has been a blessing to us all. He was such a good husband and stepfather. I sure will miss his hugs, kisses and the “Other Mother” thing. I can here him now. He was loved by us all. You know Mom will always be here for you, but I know you will do just fine. You have displayed such courage over the past 3 yrs. not only dealing with his pain, but pain of your own both physical as well as emotional.
All my Love, Mom and Marvin.
Sam, I was so sorry to read about Wayne this morning. My heart felt sympathy goes out to you. May God be with you and comfort you. I will keep you in my prayers.
Sam, just want you to know you have been in my thoughts and in my prayers. Please know I feel your pain. Whatever you do Sam, keep the Faith that one day you will see Wayne again. God Bless You…
Our Pal Wayne left me with all these crazy PSMn Women, God I wish he were here to help me sometime. I miss that guy.

I am very, very sorry for your loss. I want you to know that although I haven’t been there with you, I have been praying for you and hoping that you will have the strength and courage you needed in this very trying time. I have great faith that your husband is in the hands of the Lord and that he is no longer in pain or suffering. For you, I want you to know that whatever I can do for you, I am here almost all the time. Just let me know. Your husband touched our lives. My kids and I were remembering how he would bring them goodies/snacks home from work and cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden.
May God give you strength and comfort.
Your friend and neighbor at 1021, Kim Scruggs
When someone we love passes away we are unable to fully understand the situation. We are not taught how to deal with death. I know since Wayne was suffering and because there was so much love for him, that it was time for him to go. Thinking of all of you and wishing you alot of peaceful moments and wonderful memories. Best to all.
