    My heart and prayers are with Anna and their family. I wish for God’s comfort for them. They will not be alone in missing him. Many others loved him, including me. I will miss the two of us “taking up space” at the coffee shop and talking about nothing in particular. I will think about and miss him often. His friendship was one of God’s blessing to me.

    Dear Anna and Jackie,
    So sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing. While I have not seen him for a while he was, for years, a daily fixture at the counter when I worked at Harlem Plumbing. He was always good for a smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Anna and Jackie,

    So sorry to hear about Wayne. For nearly 15 years he was at Harlem Plumbing almost every day while we owned the store. He was one of the people who was more of a friend than a customer. Our thoughts and prayers are with both of you and he finally no longer in pain.
