    Wayne Justice was certainly a true friend to me and my family of McCreight Funeral Home in Dyersburg, TN. We certainly will always remember his mile and charm. He certainly knew how to sell you a hearse or Limo.. We will be forever grateful to Ambulance & Coach Sales. May God bring his family and friends comfort during these times and days ahead.

    To Wayne’s family

    I grew up knowing Wayne and J D Justice from the association with my Dad, Charlie Boone from Boone’s Paint & Body when the Justice Men owned and operated the gas station on Woodland. After the sale of the gas station and the passing of my Dad I lost touch with these gentlemen.

    Then a few years ago Wayne and Ms. Martha purchased my home in Blue Ridge in Hendersonville and I was able to get re acquainted with Wayne.

    He was a kind and caring individual. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Please know my prayers and thoughts are with all of you during this time.

    God Bless

    Ed and Linda Boone Williams

    Wayne Justice was definitely a great person and a blessing to my funeral home. I’ve been in business for six years and he and his company has helped me tremendously. He has also been a great presence and contributor to the Alabama Funeral Directors and Morticians Association. I want to thank Wayne Day for posting about his passing. On behalf of myself personally, and the members os the AFD&MA, we express sincere condolences to Wayne’s family.

    Mr. Justice has been a friend for many many years. Many prayers for he and Mrs. Martha have been prayed. He was a friend to so many and touched the lives of many throughout the years. Always willing to help (with a little lecture) but never failed those who called on him. He certainly loved life his family, his business and those of us that called on him. He was a a dedicated Christian, Mason and Shriner and with all that he was a dedicate man of whom I admired.

    My prayers continue for Mrs. Martha and the family.

    Though the ones we love are gone, they will live on in our hearts. May you find strength and comfort through the pages of the Bible. There it reassures us that God will soon bring about a time on the earth when death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4)
