His family included his wife Virginia Hoban Sliger (Gainesboro), brother Richard Sliger and his wife Tish (Cookeville), Sister Lou Ann Carter and her husband Alex (Hendersonville), four sons; Jim Sliger and wife Nikki (Texas), Tom Sliger and wife Nancy (Cookeville), Matt Sliger and wife Jaclyn (Algood), and Boone Sliger and wife Brandi (Cookeville), along with nine grandchildren.

Once I had a heart of stone
For it had surely lost its home
It could not love or wanted too
But into my life, then came you.

The stones began to fall away
As happiness began to fill my day
A feeling so sweet and special too
Could this be love, I pray it's true.

My heart now sings a song of love
For I know that it was sent from above
My heart is warm, there is no cold
Hard no more, but with wings of gold.

It soars above the sky so high
Sometimes I think of why and cry
My heart now sings a loving song
For the part of me, I thought was gone.

The gift that you have given me
Is so important, can't you see
No more sadness or being alone
For now, my heart returns home.

I am Carolyn Harmon (Reeder) and i grew up with Wayne . We used to sit together at church right beside his home, Holiday Church. I would come to church with my cousins. I am so sorry for your loss. I haven't seen Wayne in many years. May all the family find comfort and strength at this time from God.
