Dear Marceil & Family,

I recently learned that Wayne was ill from Lisa McMichael; shocked when told of his death. With heartfelt condolences, there are no words to express how difficult his loss is to you and your family.  But hopefully you will find some comfort recognizing that death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.  I know your fond love for Wayne has many memories that can never be stolen.

Dear Marceil & family, I was so sorry to hear of your losing Wayne. I pray the Lord is with you at this time of sorrow. Haven't seen you for a while, but know you are right across the river. I know you have many great memories. So many good times. God less you, and keep you in his ever loving arms.
