    I fondly remember working with Wayne in both King William and Essex County Public Schools. We had some good times serving together and I considered Wayne a close friend as well as a colleague. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace, my friend.

    To the family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. During this sad time, may you take comfort in the Bible's positive message. In it, our Heavenly Father assures us of his loving support in times of grief, and he promises to end tears and death permanently (Psalm 34:18 and Revelation 21:3,4). In the days ahead, may these scriptures provide a measure of comfort for your family. For more comforting thoughts, please visit jw.org. Take care.

    To the Family. Please accept my sincere condolences. God's Word is a great source of comfort and hope during difficult times and Jehovah God, 'the God of all comfort' (2 Corinthians 1:3) is fully aware of your sadness. Revelation 21:4 promises, "He will wipe out every tear" and will bring back to life those who sleep in death as Acts 24:15 promises, "There is going to be a resurrection." Be assured of these future events because God himself declares, 'I am making all things new' and 'these words are faithful and true.' ~Revelation 21:5

    This wonderful, soft spoken man invited me out to dinner and a movie on my birthday just this past October, 2017. Afterwards, we continued to talk and text as friends. I will always remember his stimulating and enlightening conversation, his wittiness, frankness, and his laughter. He enjoyed a good debate and I truly adored our friendship. From December-February, he and I spent many hours on the phone and it was during these times I would read Bible scripture to him. He promised me we would "stroll around heaven together." I truly believe the scriptures I shared with him was in preparation for his move to glory. ("Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved". Acts 2:21) Love you Wayne. We will stroll around heaven one day! Kay M.

The former things have passed away." Visit JW.ORG for more information
