To know you've left us saddens me to no end, Way... but, to know you've left your body to science to help save lives speaks to the character of the man that you were... Even in death, you continue to warm my heart and make me smile... I will miss you, my old friend... Rest in peace until we meet again....

You will be missed soooo much.  You were always so much fun to be around and had a way of making people smile and want to enjoy life.  Your family and friends will remember all the good times and looking to being with you once again, when we will all be healthy, not hurting and singing psalms to our Lord.

Way, I feel it necessary to leave my own message to you.  I just want you to know how greatful and blessed  I am to have shared the last seven years with you.  You taught me to be more loving and kinder to all mankind and you made me want to be a better person, and for this I am so greatful.  I know you went through so much and more pain than most people will never know in a life time and never once did I hear you complain.  When I would question why you, you would always say, why not me? You took all of this so courageous and like I said, NEVER Complained.  Enjoy spending time with all your friends and family until I can join you in Paradise.  I love you sweetheart and miss you so very much.    Love you, JAM


P.S.   Thanks for being my Guardian Angel, you know I need one.

Funny, witty and very good looking is how I remember Wayland.  He will always look to me in my mind just as he did in High School.  I will miss he greatly.

I will always remember how goodlooking Wayland was!  I didn't really get to know him until we were at Delta State. He was one of the nicest guys I ever knew.  I was sorry to hear thru the years of  the health problems he was having.  Still I was shocked to hear that he had passed.     

My condolences to Joyce and all of his family.  God bless you and keep you.

See you in heaven, Wayland...
