This is always a time of mixed emotions as we were sad to learn of Waylon's passing. Knowing Waylon as I did,
I chose to celebrate his entrance to heaven and into the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I will miss him, but will see him again soon. We shared many blessed times in Sunday School.

May God Bless and Keep You, Michael and Brenda Williams
