I Love You Wayne you were a second Mother to me. You help take care of me when I was the Kid next door. I never forgot that and never will. I'll miss you but I know you and Gaylord are together again. Thanks for everything you ever did for me.

Wayne was a beautiful woman-inside & out-loved teaching with her.

Oh I am so sorry to see this. She was a wonderful woman and teacher and a great example to young women. I know you all know the Truth, where she is, she's in a better place, who she's with now, etc., but that still leaves such an empty hole in your lives. We lost Mom and my mother in law this past year, so I understand. My prayers are with you all. Always remember what an impact she had on so many. She made a difference. That dash between the dates on her tombstone holds a lot of hearts!

Wayne treated me just like family. I spent many, many nights in the Wann home as a kid growing up. I will always cherish our Sunday after church visits to Bokoshe and Wister. I am truly blessed to have known her. My heart goes out to all the family, especially Gaylene and Sandy. She is safe in her eternal home with her Savior, Jesus.

Sandy, Gaylene and families, words will never be enough to express my deepest sympathy. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this saddest of times. Some of my fondest memories are the times spent with Gaylord and Wayne at the cabin, so much fun. Wayne had such a contagious laugh, and that is how I wish to remember this dear women. Hold tight to those precious memories.
