My name is cole wright and I am one of Jades many nephews. When David told me that Jade had passed away I was crying knowing that my favorite uncle had passed away. Jade was like a father to me and i loved him dearly. Its also a shame that he died just days before his birthday. But the family threw him his last birthday at davids house and i hope he rests easy.
