    Loann and family my deepest sympathies at the news. Recently I had discovered Wayne was doing worship from the church on livestream so enjoyed hearing him play again and I was singing along. He will be missed so much. May you all know the comfort of the Holy Spirit at this time is my prayer. Love you all!

    It was a blessing to see my cousin Wayne and LoAnn at a family reunion in 2015 in Lincoln. It had been years. His aunt Wauneta and I enjoyed his music and catching up. He was a kind and talented man. Prayers and sympathy for all the Irving family.
