Della and family, 47 years ago we entered each others life. You were my best friend and your mom and dad were like a second set of parents to me. They didn't let me get away with much either. I guess what I want to say is even though we haven't been close for years it still feels like a big chunk of my life is gone. I send my condolences and my love to Georgia, Della, Melissa and Kathy. Your family will always have a corner of my life but the corner just got a little smaller. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Georgia - The heavens got a special angel when they took Wayne home. In the short time that I knew him he was a kind and gentle hearted man. Always had a smile for my boys. While we will miss him here on earth, there is nothing better than knowing he is celebrating his wonderful life with God. Our thoughts go out to you and your family during this time of transition....much love from us to you...

So So Sorry, We are out of town but our family will pay a tribute to my favorite Uncle. Wayne was always so funny. People through the city thought he was my Dad. We looked so much alike. I loved him so much. I remember my first Drive in Movie was with Aunt Georgia and Uncle Wayne. Tuna Fish Sandwiches and Pop Corn... A and W Root Beer. We ended up sleeping in the car after we arrived home on 24th and Adams. My very favorite Home as growing up. He also took me for many Shakes at Judy's Ice on 30th and Harrison. Seems he like Strawberry. He brought Grandma Irene Strawberry her favorite. He visited our home at 2050 Gramercy each and every week to care for his ill Mother for many years, who had a stroke at a young age but live a long time to the age of 87. Wayne would pick me up in his 1952 brown and tan station wagon smoking the Crook Cigar. The car reaped of Cigar but I loved it. He was a great person who will always be remember by many. May all the family be blessed with his memories, his love. May the blessings be with you Georgia that your health will be well and may the Lord be at your side during these hard times. Our Love Sally and Russell Pincombe, Stacie, John, Nathan, Jeff and Jamie..
