Wow, Wayne!  You've gone.  What great memories I have of a Great Guy back in The Sixties at good old John Tyler High School.  Your presence on this Earth was a Blessing.  You will be missed.  Fare Thee well, Friend, and have a speedy and safe journey.  See you again someday in The Wild Blue Yonder.  Akers.

Such a great loss of my lifelong friend. I turned on my computer tonight, went to email, scrolled down and saw a memory from JT's web site.  When I saw that Wayne had passed away I was completely  floored. It will be a while for me it accept this news. Please accept my warmest condolences to all of Waynes family.  Way he rest in peace!!!
