Please tell Glen how sorry I am to hear about Wayne. I will remember your family in my prayers. I canít tell you how many times I drove by the funeral home that weekend. I thought about coming, but his family didnít know me at all and I just felt a little funny. I hope it went well. I will remember the times we dated. Gwen

It's hard to describe the shock I felt when one of the management told me Wayne had died. I worked with Wayne for about 1 1/2 years since he was the dispatcher for the Kansas-Oklahoma area. Although we had some differances Wayne was always fair with me and all the other drivers he worked with. Wayne will be missed by all who knew him, directly or indirectly he touched many lives. Your Sorrow is felt by all, and know that the Lord is there with Wayne looking down on all of us.

I am sorry for your loss, and I share your pain. I grew up with Wayne from Werner Park through high school and I can't think of a better friend. Everyone remembers his baseball ability, but he was much more than that to his friends. We always had fun together no matter what we did. I will always remember him with love.

Wayne & I went to school from Jr. High through high School and he was always a good friend. At our recent 40th Fair Park High School reunion many of us look for Wayne. He will be remembered by many with a smile.
Glenn Jackson left a message on August 29, 2006:
Dear Family: I graduated with Wayne at Fair Park High School in 1966. Wayne's sports ability was tremendous, but he was also a giving, caring, and genuine person. Wayne touched many lives in his 57 years. He will not be forgotten. And we know that he is in God's care. I can only share in a small way your sorrow and grief. May God comfort you now and always.

Jerry Smith left a message on August 29, 2006:
Family, Wayne and i grew up together and played baseball together through Fair Park. In fact, we did everything together as kids until we left high school. Although we haven't talked in years, i think about our times together when we were kids, even today. Wayne used to be able to throw up a rock and hit it with a broom handle. I could never do that and he could do it solidly EVERYTIME. He was a GOOD friend to me. I loved playing sports with Wayne. He ALWAYS gave his best and boy could he hit!! Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. We just found out today or would have attended his services. FAmily, please feel free to email me. I have many stories that you may be interested in. May you be blessed in his absence, Jerry Werner Park Elementary Midway Jr. High Fair Park

To Wayne's Family, Wayne was a great guy. I still see his smile and think of all the great times we had together. He was my first love. Wayne would later tell me that we were "in like", but I was in love. Wayne loved his sports hunting, fishing, and playing ball. I was a foolish young girl who actually thought a teenage boy would want to spend all his time with me instead of the things he really loved. It made for many an argument. He was destined to play ball and I know that was what he would have wanted for his life. It was good to read, in the paper about all his accomplishments. I was unaware of most of them and happy to see that he had so many nieces and nephews to spoil. After our 30th reunion, I wrote about 12 people and told them how much I missed seeing them. Only two responded, one was Wayne. The fact that he responded meant a lot to me. He mentioned his "daughter" and then told me it was his dog. I know he cared a lot for her and I'm glad to see she was there to the end. My life was much richer for having known him for even a little while. His fellow classmates and I are praying for you to find peace through this, and hold dear all your memories of Wayne. Wayne will always hold a special place in my heart.

I am so sorry to hear such sad news. I went to school with Wayne from grammer school through Fair Park. He was a funny, nice friend who I have fond memories of during school. We will miss him.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Wayne was a friend of mine at Fair Park, I graduated in 1966 with him. I was your paperboy during my highschool years, I lived on Fulton St. I only wish I had known Wayne lived in Monroe. My Dad had moved to W Monroe several years ago where I have aunts and uncles; and I made many a trip there before he died last Dec. I would have contacted Wayne had I only known. Again I am sorry. Wayne was a good friend and He was a super person always friendly to everyone. What a loss to our world. Doug Simmons
Tom and Sandy Brown left a message on August 27, 2006:
It is with difficulty that we find words to express our grief in Wayne's passing. The news of his death was a sudden, unexpected, and particularly distressing event that leaves a visable and profound effect upon those of us that shared the "glory days" of NLU baseball with him. Even though Wayne has been removed from our midst, our thoughts will be with him and our prayers will be with his family. We extend our deepest sympathy, Tom and Sandy Brown
Kathie Hargon Thompson left a message on August 25, 2006:
Mike and I always treasured Wayne's friendship. He had such an easy smile, you couldn't help but be happy around him. He could almost perform magic on the baseball field, watching him, you never knew what phonomenal play he would make or the great hit he would hit out. It saddens us both to learn of Wayne's passing, but I have no doubt he will be entertaining Heaven to his very best. Our deepest sympathies for his family, I know you will miss him terribly. We would like to make a memorial donation to NLU I just can't get used to the new namein Wayne's name. God bless you and keep you close as you grieve your loss.

Bill Hannah left a message on August 25, 2006:
A man among men. A leader we admired and respected. He did this and was still one of us. Let us not forget an old timers game when he struck out. He walks back to the dugout and says "Does this guy know who I am?" Humor, ability and respect sums up the way I remember Burney.
Art LaGrange left a message on August 25, 2006:

I was shocked to hear the news about Wayne. I played left field with Wayne at Northeast. We were very close then. I loved him very much and am so sad to hear that he is gone now. We shared many great memories. It was an honor to play beside him and be his friend. Please let me know if there is anything at all that I can do. My number at the school board office is 388-8924.
