  20. Barbara, you and Wayne have been such an inspiration in our lives. The two of you have shown us how to live meaningful lives for ourselves, our families, our church, our community, and our country. We hope we can live up to the standard for character Wayne set. All our families and friends were so proud of him. Wayne was a cousin, but he was more like a brother and friend to me. I like to think of Wayne and my brother Carl and I as the three musketeers. We will miss him.

  21. Barbara – You and Wayne were part of the happiest three years of our lives when I pastored in Douglas. You two became true and dear friends. We treasure knowing you and your precious children.
