Happy Birthday, Wayne

This week is the anniversary of my brother Wayne's birth and death. Wayne was born 9 November 1951, and died 12 November 1963. My father said that he was not given oxygen after he was born and the consequence was cerebral palsy. I want to share a few photos of him during his short life on this earth. Wayne was well loved by our immediate family, and I remember the expressions of love of our extended family as well. I think of him often and send him my love. I am grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the knowledge that our family is eternal. Happy Birthday,Wayne.

Wayne is 2 years and 6 months older than me,
but he was always very small, due to the
muscle atrophy.
