Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, far as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart. My Uncle Wayne will stay in my memories the rest of my life. The love never dies and the memories of laughter and fun whil never fade. What a wonderful man! The world is missing an intelligent Christian man. Stay strong Aunt Sandra.
