Wade will be sorely missed by so many. He was such a great person and a joy to be around. He was the best Father in Law a girl could ask for. Always willing to help anyone out, if it was in his means. He was a great listener. I will miss our chats Wade. Love you and you will forever be in my heart. Thank you for all you did.
