    Dearest Wade,
    I keep picking up my phone to call & check on you…to see how you’re doing. I know now, with all certainty, that you are walking on streets of gold singing Amazing Grace~how sweet the sound! I am now confident you are no longer in so much pain and struggling to leave those you love behind. I am assured we will all be together again one glorious day but until then, I’ll keep holding your hand, never letting go, just like you asked me to.
    We all love & miss you,

    Brother- man ~
    There is simply not enough room on this page for all the things that come to mind as I sit here thinking about you. To love you is to experience emotions so extreme it could at times rival the best roller coaster this world has to offer. You could piss off (pardon my French) a saint …. but YOU also have a way of loving that somehow makes it ok, winks.

    You have and effect on every one you come in contact with. Thank you for being you and loving us the way only you can. You know God always sends the least likely of person to do His good works and I witnessed Him using you in just that way. Over and over again. Riding in (much like the Calvary) just in the nick of time. You were a teacher of sorts. Showing us how to do the difficult but right thing and then sometimes ….. not so much. To use your own words you could be the best example of what NOT to do.

    Love you very much. I hate the circumstances that brought it about but treasure the closeness we shared and the YOU I have come to know. You have all the Salt Flat speed records beat by now, where you are. You are still gonna teach me to ride but I guess you will have to teach me to ride in the clouds. This world will not be the same with out you in it and I would be willing to bet Heaven will NEVER be the same since your arrival. Those poor souls never knew what hit em, lol.

    Until then, Brother man ~

    I knew Wade years ago (30+) years ago but thought of him often over the years. When I discovered he had passed I was shocked and saddened…my condolences to his family and friends…y’all are in my prayers. And Jason…I doubt if you’ll remember me…but I certainly remember you. Hope you are doing well!
