I saw Wayne every day at Fit4Less. I didn't talk to him much nor did I know his name. However, he was a much-appreciated staple of everyone's morning at the gym. He'd be smiling from ear to ear and his cheerful demeanor would rub off on those around. I noticed his absence in the past few weeks and I am very sorry to hear of his passing.
Our memories will live on.
