We love you Wayne...and will miss you!!

We lost a great friend Sunday to what the docs speculate may have been a massive heart-attach. Wayne Dye was like a grandfather to Jason and I, we have known him for almost 6 years, and we are devastated that he is no longer with us. He was the guy that would literally give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He was fun loving, out going, and just a great person to be around.

It is so wierd as to how everything happened...let me just start from the beginning and tell the story...

Wayne and his wife Lydia ALWAYS carried around a 1/2 dollar in their pockets (which they gave to one another years ago)...well Friday Wayne gave his to one of his co-workers, Dewayne Connor, and told him to hold onto it just in case something happened and he didn't return from the nascar races. Of course Dewayne said to him that nothing is going to happen and he would see him back at work the next week...well of course you all know that didn't happen. It is almost like Wayne knew something was wrong. He had just told Phillip Esaw (another worker at Ryburn) that he didn't sleep good that Thursday night, from a pain in his chest and feeling like he was going to be sick (which in most cases that is the onset of a heart attach) but Wayne obviously had no clue...Then to hear that Wayne and his wife had just recently spoke about how he wanted his funeral arrangements to be...It is so sad and my heart just aches for Mrs. Lydia and everyone that had the chance to know Wayne, he was a super great guy...

Each time Jadyn Cooper and I would go to the dealership and see Jason, she just had to go play with Wayne...He would ALWAYS get her a balloon, or 3 or 4 or 5...he spoiled her rotten. He loved Jadyn Cooper as I know she loved him right back. It pains me to think that I have to in some way try and explain to my little girl (my three year old) that Mr. Wayne will no longer be at daddy's work to play with her and get balloons. I am at a loss for words on how to even go about telling her what happened...Anyone got any suggestions?

Anyway after saying what I have, I just wanted to let everyone know what a great guy he was and is...He is truly missed around the dealership, for he was just like FAMILY!!
