Wade, will always be that sweet young boy who live to pretend to be "Roy" from Emergency back in the seventies. We loved Wade and so thankful we have the hope that he is with His Savior, Jesus Christ. I look forward to joining him someday and we will have eternity to Praise our Lord. Praying for all of you. It was a privilege to be his Aunt. Love and prayers to all.

I did not know Wade, but I know his sister in law, Lavina Wiggins. I am her pastor. We have been praying for Wade for sometime and his wife and family. We are thankful of the great gift God gave them in Wade, and we are praying for the Lord to put His presence on them to give them His peace. We love Wade's family and offer our sincere condolences. May God give you His guidance during this time of loss.

There are no words to truly express how amazing of a Father, Husband, and Grandfather My Dad was. I'll always remember how we used to goof around and go out golfing or fishing. How proud he was when he found out I went into the Military and how excited he was to find out I was having a daughter then a son a little after. My heart is truly broken and probably won't truly heal for a long time. Dad, I hope to see you again in the next life and know I will love you forever and always. I'll do my best to live up to everything you ever wanted me to be as not only a son but also a father and husband. You always taught me to be a good man and be the bigger person in certain situations and know right from wrong. You taught me to chase after my dreams and you'd always support me in whatever I do. I can't even remotely put into words how thankful I am to have been your son. I love you Dad and I will truly miss you. Till we meet again in the next chapter in life.
