    I live in Florida and often look at the Canton Daily Ledger for “Hometown” news. My sister Shirley Engle and brother Don Engle grew up with Wayne and his brothers and sister in Breeds. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. It sounds like he led a wonderful life, and was so fortunate to have been married to his wife for so long. What a tribute to the kind of man he was. I was little when we moved from Breeds, but what little memory I have of him, I remember him as being a very kind young man. May God bless all the VanMiddlesworth family at this time of loss and mourning.
