    I have missed Wayn the past 20 years. He was so funny and talented. He was always a nephew to me in my extended family. RIP

    Garry and the rest of the Ledbetter family;
    Mike and I just wanted to send a note and tell you that we are praying for all of you. When my brother called to tell me Wayn had passed away, I was just heartbroken. He was often with my younger brother, and I think he had fun picking on me just like he would a big sister! The best thing I remember about him though was the infectious smile that he always had on his face.

    God works in mysterious ways. Just a few hours before Stephen called, Mike and I had been talking about you Garry, and some of the other men from the Arkansas Company of 1986 that went through Navy Boot Camp together. His mom had come across a photo album of pictures that had been taken before you guys left, at graduation from boot camp and some that she snapped at Disney and Epcot. We’d been talking about trying to find you guys now that we have a list of names!

    Just know that you all are loved. And Wayn will definitely be missed!
