Mr. Anderson showed to me qualities such as integrity, honesty, character and respect for mankind, that all humans should strive to have. What a man of honor.

May he rest in peace.

To the family of Wayne Vaughn Anderson,

I never knew Wayne, but I want to share my condolences with the family during this time of distress. The Bible offers a wonderful hope for the future that will bring the family comfort. In John 5:28,29 says

“Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice?and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”

May the family find a measure of comfort in God’s Word.
