Wade was one of my Dad's best friends. When my Dad spoke of Wade he always had a smile on his face and a chuckle. They both were wonderful people in the world and are missed.
Mary Lee and family, I am very sorry for the loss you are experiencing. He was a sweet soul that will be missed every day. Cherish the memories.
Love to you and God Bless,
