Mrs. Waye, Jennifer, Michael and family;
My deepest condolences. Over the years, I’ve often been asked who is your Minister and I have never hesitated with my reply: Rev Waye. He set many institutional values I hold strong today and without a doubt one of the strongest personalities who influenced “who I am.” His dedicated years of community service has profoundly impacted so many lives in so many communities. May you as a family find comfort and reassurances he leaves this world a “greater place” because he shared his life with us. God Bless. Deward King

Sincere condolence is extended to the family of the late Rev. Munden Waye; a high energy person, who took on many projects & always got the job done.!
