"My heart and soul hurt's for my friend and client, Darlene Earnhardt Wayne and family. It makes me think of Revelation 21:4 - And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. I don't see Michael Wayne as gone but raised to the father. He is now part of our future. Until we meet again, I leave y'all with 2 Corinthians 5:1-2 For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. I love you with sympathy in Christ Jesus, Darlene Earnhardt Wayne."
From: Gene and Diane Rainey
