Wayne had one of the biggest hearts of anyone I knew. He would do anything for anyone. I will never forget how much he loved my daughters and the kindness he shared with my family.

I know he is probably in heaven fishing someplace…..

We all will miss him and I am so sorry for y our loss.

Dolly, Junnie,
Wayney was always fun when we were growing up. We shared many laughs together! I wouldn’t trade that time for nothing in the world.
RIP Wayne!
Love, Marcia and Chuck

Condolence from Nancy Sheldrick Smith on June 25th, 2012 12:46 pm

I would like to thank everyone who has paid respects to my father. Whether it was a message left here or on the Times Union website, a phone call, card sent or a friendly email. Many were able to come in person. It meant so much to me and the family. More than you can know. Wayne has some great friends and family. Many I have not seen in many years, many I have not met until recently. I was able see how much people truly loved and adored him.
While I have not seen him in quite some time, it didn’t make it any easier losing him. I guess I always thought there would be time to mend, time to heal old wounds. Time for that talk of a million questions why. I know it will all have to wait now.

Thank you all for your support and kind words!

And to Wayne my father……
In case you didn’t know or never heard me say it…..I love you and hope you are at ease and pain free now. Shine strong!
