Charlsa, some of our fondest memories of you and Wade are of the times our Mixed Nuts Sunday School Class at Hebron met together especially to pray for our precious children. We rejoiced over many answered prayers. Some of those dear friends, are welcoming Wade in heaven now.

You and Ben and all your family will continue to be in our prayers. May you feel the comfort of the Holy Spirit, especially now.

Dearest Charlsa, George and I are so deeply grieved at the loss of such a sweet friend. Wade was always the epitome of the true Southern gentleman. We valued his friendship and esteem very highly, and we'll miss his quick smile and kind heart. We love you both dearly.
