  1. I had the pleasure of working with Wayne on a project benefiting St. Jude's hospital. He was an incredibly sweet man; generous with his time, and appreciative (after a bad experience) of his fans. He also had a great sense of humor and I treasure the e-mails we shared.

    In doing the St. Jude's project, he agreed to let me start a Facebook page for him that is still active. When he passed, he was living in Vermont ("somewhere green") and working on a film and book project. He is much missed by his fans.
