I'm so sorry for your loss. Uncle Wayne was the sweetest and kindest man and the best father . He and your mama was so good to us and I spent a lot of nights with Dianne, Debbie and Ruth and he always treated me like one of his girls. He will be missed and I know he's in heaven with Aunt Edna.
Randall Smith left a message on March 15, 2022:
Dianne, Debbie, Ruth, and families: Donna and I would like to offer our sincere condolences in the loss of Uncle Wayne. I always thought so highly of him and Aunt Edna. I know my daddy often talked about the good ol’ days when he and Wayne worked in a gas station together, working on cars, and then worked many years together at Platt Saco Lowell. I remember family gatherings, and seeing Uncle Wayne turn the radio on in his car to listen to the races. He was a good man, and will be missed. But I join with you all to rejoice that he’s now with Edna, and his Savior Jesus. God bless you all! Randall (Randy) Smith
