Praying for you all. Wayne will be greatly missed. One fond memory I have of Wayne was when I was a teenager and had to walk home from school to the old farm house just outside of Columbia City. Wayne just happened to be driving that way and stopped and offered me a ride home. That was so much appreciated that I have never forgotten it. May he find comfort in the arms of Jesus, Ellen and Dave Smith
