Sylvia and Julie,
My heartfelt condolences go out to you in this time of sorrow. Upon hearing of Chris' passing I could only think back to the Alamo Street days and the friendship we shared. My prayer is that our God fill your heart and mind with His peace during this time of grieving.

Sylvia and family... My thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire family at this time of great loss. Wade had many roles in life that encompassed not only his fellow Marines but continuing on in the way he conquered his roles as a son, brother, uncle, brother-in-law, father, husband, and mentor. He was brave beyond words, loved unconditionally, truly cherished, and honored through out his lifetime. I believe that this in itself is the greatest compliment to you, his mother. His children, wife, and other family members can take great comfort and solace that Wade's presence in their life is the greatest legacy of all.

There are so many wonderful words and ways to describe someone larger than life such as Wade. Sublime would be mine. Where there is sorrow, there is holy ground.

Dear Sylvia, Julie, and extended Wiseman Family: We are so sorry for your loss of Christopher Wade. He was a great guy. Our families grew up together on Flora Circle and still next-door neighbors! We were fortunate to have seen him here in Las Cruces in September. We now have a new Angel in Heaven to watch over us. May God Bless You All and Keep You Safe. Sincerely, Dolores and Celestina Telles
