I served with Wade in the US Army Germany. We dated for awhile prior to me getting out. As in the Army I did not think I would of heard from him again. A couple of weeks after I returned home I started to receive a letter EVERY DAY from him however my life took a different turn. Last August 2018 I received a letter with no return address or whom it was from. I then received a Face book friend request in April 2018 he had left me a lengthy message. Not really knowing who I was talking to I took the chance and responded in August 2018. He said he had looked for me for 30 years!!! We started reconnecting it was destiny our souls were connect. Some may say he was a grizzly bear but to me he was a teddy bear. He brought so much love and light into my life in a time I really didn't want to live. Fly high Wade! You will forever be in my heart till we meet at those pearly gates. You left way way too soon!
