    Uncle Wayne, I will always love you for your love of our Lord. I’ll never forget calling you Daddy one time because you two looked so much alike. I will forever miss your laugh. You were such a prankster.

    Brother Winstead, We Love You and miss you so much. You were always my other Dad when I was growing up, was admired, and looked up too for guidance, advice, and understanding. I thank the Lord for all the years of friendship and love that you gave to me as a child and an adult. You will always be my other Dad and I Love You very much. Rest in Gods arms now, and I can’t wait to see you in Heaven again.
