    Our hearts go out to his family and friends...Never "talked" with him on here but reading his stories and struggles has made me wish I had.
    Wayne Rest In Peace , and enjoy the campground of Heaven...

    Praying for Wayne's family. He will be missed here and by his family. Hope the campfire and s'mores are endless in heaven.

    SO not the update we had hoped for. Healing vibes for the family and friends.

    If he finds my dad up there, I'm sure they'll be room for him and his puppy. My 'two' dads are in a huge bass boat with about 9 dogs, all who loved the water. [A] [:)O]

    So glad to have been a part of a "friendship" here on the portal. Re-reading some of the encouraging comments sent to him, had to have been so special to him. This is a big part of what brings me back here- the encouragement, wisdom, humor and caring spirit that is shared among us! Continued prayers for Wayne's family and friends.

    You deal with it in faith and optimism. Good is power and medicine has came a long way. Find fun distressing things to do. Don.

    Hey y'all. Just thought about having a 'memorial fire' for Wayne tomorrow night. Can be anyone, anywhere, at night. I'd like to think the space station guys would radio Houston with a message something like "NASA, We have a ...um...GLOW!" Wouldn't that be so cool. Wayne would be dancing with his puppy, loving the attention.

    That said, I'm dedicating my fire tomorrow night, Saturday, to Wayne. I don't drink, so this is the best toast I could personally do.

    Let's light up the world people....Lord knows we have members from ALL over the world to do it [A]!!

    So sorry to hear. Hopefully his immediate family and his Pop Up Portal family, too can take solace in the fact that he is in a better place, and that he has been given a new, healthy body. Wishing and praying that those missing him will be able to weather the grieving process, and that soon happy memories will outweigh the mourning. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

    My condolences to Waynes family. I always enjoyed his positive attitude in the face of his many adversities. His posts about his travels and his four legged friends were always entertaining and somehow, reassuring that life is full of joy. His posts here on Popup Portal will be missed.
