Wayne,
You were my teacher, my boss, my best man, my best friend. The lessons you taught me, are with me every moment of every day. They say that someone is never really gone as long as you hold them in your memories and in your heart; if thats true, then you are still larger than life itself in my book. We shared so much together that can never be summed up in a few words...other than to say, I love you very much and you will always be a part of me. Carol my heart, my love and my sympathy go out to you; Please never hesitate to call me for anything 878-8938.

Although I didn't know Wayne that well, I've heard good things about him and of course sorry to hear of his passing. He was my cousin; his father and my father (Thomas Walker) were brothers.
Condolences to his family.

Wayne Walker was a very special, caring, and kind man who lived a very full life.
Wayne was devoted to his wife Carol, and his many friends and family. Thank you for our memories.
Wayne was a very generous man who wanted to make people feel "at home" and happy all the time.
