Ci, We love you and wish we could be there for you. Praying that the Lord will surround you and the whole family with His palpable presence. It's going to be a very hard day tomorrow, but our God will carry you through as He has been carrying you for the past several weeks ... and He will continue to carry you until you are ready to walk by His side again. We pray for blessings and peace and comfort as you rest in the arms of the Father. Love you.

Dear Ci, Reid, Shane and Cade, I'm SO SAD to hear of the loss of your husband and father, as well as another cousin of mine. I've always felt cousin Wayne was a kind and gentle person. I remembered when I was about 10 yrs old, he would teach me how to play "Green Doors" on the piano with him. I have fond memories of our two families (Curtis & Davis) having great fun camping during our growing up years. I'm glad we stayed in contact over the years, as some of us have moved to different states. Even though we didn't see each other, I always knew he was out there. :)) I love his picture! How very nice! Now he's gone to Heaven. May he rest in peace...forever... I will miss him too... Sincerely, with our love, XOXOXOXOXOXOXO Cousin Brenda Davis-Deeds & Robert Deeds (Ellensburg, WA as of 8-2022) (Cousin Kris Davis sends his condolences too)

We send our prayers for C.I., And their sons Reid (Mario), Shane (Franci), and Cade (Theresa). C.I's Family and my brothers Mike ,Dale and Wayne's nieces Kim and Pam and their families, all of whom feel the loss of brother Wayne whom I loved dearly and will miss the rest of my life. Anyone who knew him will surely miss his wit. May he be in peace and wrapped in his Fathers arms.
