Wayne was one of my best friends. I got married and moved away just found out about him. I'm building a old camero he helped me go get the last car I'm building. I'm building it in remembrance of my good friend and brother. God sure got a angel he was always happy and tried to help people. God Bless you Wayne and peace be with you my friend. Lifes short and takes many turns .I remember the last time I seen him he wanted a ride in my new challenger and loved that car. We shall meet again one day my treasured friend.

Wayne was the best friend I had when my family moved to Pocahontas. He always watched over me so no one would pick on me since I was so small. He always had a beautiful smile and a kind heart. I never met anyone except my husband who was so kind and caring as I did with Wayne. He loved his family, especially his Mother. He knew he always had a guardian angel and that was Pat. They loved the Eddie Mae Herron Center. He was so proud for all of the time he worked there but it wasn't work to him. Wayne found the Lord so now I not only was his friend but now I know that I have an angel in heaven. Pocahontas lost a wonderful loving man and I will always know that he's in heart at all times. He loved everyone who was kind and carrying and loved life in so many ways. I'm going to miss him but he had a good journey to heaven. Robin Alphin Hamm
