  1. Wayne Shaw was one of the finest men I have ever known. He was a living example of what a Christian man should be.
    Wayne would take my parents to Amarillo for their Dr’s appointments when they were unable to drive themselves. I will for ever be thankful for his kindness to them and to me. I know that he is resting at the feet of our Savior and I am sure he has heard from Him… “A job well done my good and faithful servant.”

  2. Wayne was my school bus driver, jr high Sunday school teacher, and he took us to church camp. I had the privilage of serving as a deacon with him for over 25 years. But the thing that I will remember is listening to him sing to Lord. He will be missed but he lives on in the arms of his Lord and Savior. Thank you Wayne for being a man of God and let me see that at a young age.
