    Wayne will be truly missed. I had many good times working with Wayne and learned something from him every on every job we worked together. He has a wonderful family that he spoke of often and loved them all. There are many memories that I will always remember and cherish. I hope he saves a seat for me.

    I am keeping the Little family in my warmest thoughts as they navigate through this difficult time — and I am wishing them hope, comfort, and with time healing. Wayne was a great man. May he Rest In Peace.
