Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end.They simply mean I'll miss you, Until we meet again!

Wayne passed away along with friend Stan W. Hallet as a result of injuries sustained in a traffic collision. But lives on in the hearts of all who knew him. "Too well loved to be forgotten"

Wayne is remembered by friends for his love of juggling, his kind, quite nature and a personality that anyone who stopped to talk to him liked. and as put by friends
"eyes that would sparkle when he smiled". A Loving son and brother. A cherished and deeply missed friend.
{Left in your honor Wayne, by the family of your friend Sarah who cherishes her memories with you and your friendship}

If tears could build a stairway
and memories were a lane
We'd walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness
and secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know.
But we know you want us
To mourn for you no more,
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
Forever in our hearts
Is where you'll always stay ***

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes are filled with tears for me
I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today
While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say
I know how much you loved me, as much as I loved you
And each time you think of me I know you'll miss me too
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand
That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand
He said my place was ready in heaven far above
And that I'd have to leave those I dearly love
But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye
For all my life I always thought I didn't want to die
I had so much to live for and so much to do
It almost seemed impossible that I was leaving you
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad
I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had
If I could re-live yesterday, I thought for just a while
I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile
Then I realized fully that this was not to be
For emptiness and memories would take the place of me
But when I walked through heavens gates I felt so much at home
When God looked down and smiled at me from His great golden throne
He said this is eternity and all I promised you
Today your life on earth has passed but here it starts anew
I promise no tomorrows, but today will always last
And each day's a new day there's no longing for the past
Now you've been forgiven and at last from pain you're free
So wont you come and take My hand and share your life with Me.
When tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart
For every time you think of me I'll be right there in your heart
