For many years I have known Wayne and upon coming up here today I found out the bad news. I first met him years ago when his Mom and Dad owners of the Country Motel, he was the help( lol) Beyond Wayne and his parents and sons I never met anyone else in the family. We would talk often about music and everything. I missed Wayne by 1 week. My heart goes out to his whole family and to my buddy Wayne. As with his Mom, she was a great hugger ) and His Dad ( hearty handshake ) , Wayne with the gentlemen hug and shake of hand. I will miss my brother as we referred to each other. I have also lost a good friend whom I will always remember. God Speed Wayne.
