We were good friends for only four months and then you were gone.
Rest in peace
YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN
10 Feb 2004
Wally is right about that big smile but the only picture I have of you is with a serious look. It was taken shortly before you had to leave us. A few years ago I had the pleasure of hearing from your niece who was born after your time with us. I would love to hear from her or any of the family again. She told me about your Dad and Brother, I guess you're all together now. It's still like yesterday, you're still with me, Brother! R. I. P.
A memorial from a friend,
John, it will be 35 years in a few weeks, I will always remember your smile and that great outlook. God bless you and thanks for being a good guy.
From a fellow soldier,
Dear Uncle Wayne,
I wasn't alive when you were here but I have heard so much about you. I wish I could have met you - I'm betting we would have had a lot of fun together. You're a Great Uncle now, your great niece Hailey Noel was born on December 23, 2003. Don't worry she'll know all about you and the sacrifice you made for our country, and when she's old enough I'll take her to visit The Wall in DC just like my mom did for me. I love you and I know I'll see you one day in Heaven. Til then just keep an eye on us, we need all the help we can get.
I may not have known you but I researched you for a while and wish I had met you. Thank you for your sacrifice and I hope your memory lives on forever.
From a student.
