Thank you for coming back on here and passing on the sad news. Your father let us all know that this was coming and was a regular fixture around here for the time he had left. He passed on plenty of knowledge to us all and seemed to really enjoy himself here even with what he was going through. I know that he really was enjoying fixing up his truck for the purpose of passing it on to you. Again, thank you for coming on here and letting us know he finally passed. He will truly be missed and while we are all sad that he had to leave us, I am at least happy to have gotten to "know" him and also now know that he is no longer having any of those "hard days" as he would put it, as the pain is finally gone.

I wish you and your whole family the best and am grateful for having the chance to have interacted with Wayne.

Thank you for sharing your grief with us. Over the past several months I'd gotten to know Wayne as a friend and fellow bump enthusiast. We shared many PMs and emails and even with all he was going through he always shared his wisdom and advice readily. He was a good man and I consider myself priveleged to have called him my friend. May God bless you all and bring you comfort during this difficult time. I hope you'll join our community here so his legacy and his truck will continue to live on with us.

It was always nice to see the posts he would put up, sometimes just to say he appreciated a small thing in life. puts things into perspective sometimes, and we all need that in life. I get the feeling that his personality was immortalized here on Fordification...
