  1. Though I haven’t seen Wayne since I left the school system, I’ve never forgotten him. Seeing his face and hearing his voice always made my day. He had the ability to make me laugh with just a look or a word. He was simply one of the kindest people I know. He was always helpful and supportive and more than happy to get into some sort of mischief. I loved teasing him about his hair and I had the rare ability to leave him speechless, which was hard to do. He had a rebuttal for everything. Wayne, you were and are much loved and will be missed by so many. May you rest in peace.
    Love,
    Lynne Henson
