I am one of the many first cousins that Wade had on the Sanford side of the family. I was very sad to see this loss. I wish I had looked him up years ago. I have not seen Wade since we were both children. I have fond memories of Uncle Aubrey, Aunt Juanita, Wade and Ronda coming to visit us at our home in Baytown when we were all children. My parents was Jarrel and Johnnie Sanford. Please give my love to Aunt Juanita and Ronda.
