    I personally did not know Wayne, but from what I can tell he was a great person and made many smile. My husband, Mike (father of Wayne’s cousin Becca) has talked about him and of what a great person he was. No words can make the family feel better just know you are all in our thoughts and prayers and know Wayne is in a better place singing to his grandpa and many others in heaven. Much love and prayers. The Baldwins
