Tribute honors Wayne Howard
Published 6:21 pm Wednesday, June 24, 2009
Last week your city lost Wayne Howard, a friend, an American patriot and a man dedicated to the love of his family and faith.
Wayne would tell you that his passing should be a celebration of life and a victory for Christ Jesus. Be happy and rejoice.
He would share the scripture of John 14:1-6. These verses show that our Father goes to prepare a place for you. That is where I am. Verse 6 says, “I am the way, the truth and the life and no one can come to the Father but through me.”
Your challenge for today: If you are without salvation and acceptance, then change that today. Ask Christ into your life.
Wayne’s life was about faith, family and friends.
Faith-to believe, trust and hope.
Family-to love, encourage and sustain.
Friends-to share, help and care about.
All of you are those, and I was a life friend. Wayne and I were able to visit three times in recent months and these words are thoughts, concerns and prayers that we shared together.
