Wayne, Regina and your lovely children. I am so sorry you have lost both your parents in death. My best teaching memories are those from the old Cord school when Linda Garrett and I taught there. I still have the card your sweet Mother wrote me, thanking us for coming. Every Christmas, when I decorate my Christmas Tree, those memories flood my heart. God Bless Your Family.Love Ms. Anna
Have many great memories of him and love hearing stories of his and my dadâ€™s childhood together. Much love and many prayers to all.
My condolences upon hearing the news of the passing of your family patriarch. Donald Wayne's legacy as a man of exceptional character will remain. May God bless the Anderson family in the days ahead.
The Anderson family holds such a special place in my heart. I am praying for them and the days ahead. Don Wayne was one of a kind and such a treasure. He always was so good and had a servant heart for God.
It's such a sad day to say good-bye to one of the best men around but Heaven sure is shining brighter. We know Ms. Patsy had her arms open wide ready to hug and rejoice that they are reunited together as they should be. We will continue to lift this family up in our prayers. I know he loved his family and always made them a priority. He made many memories and they are treasures.
So sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Laura Martin & Marley Anderson
