Wayne was a friend of my brother's who was only there 2 months when he was killed. I was only a young kid but I do remember him coming to visit. I think he was a foster child who may have had a tough time even growing up to the young age he reached. I'm not sure about family but he is remembered.

Wayne was my uncle. He died before I was born but my father (Uncle Wayne's brother) told me I would have gotten along with him nicely. He was artistic and a great reader and my dad said that is where I get it from. Although I never did meet him my father said he was a loyal friend and he was his best friend. He was my father's younger brother and to this day he still misses him... You are my hero, Uncle Wayne... Forever, Tessa
