Wade was a kid that I enjoyed being around. We loved ribbing each other and playing tricks on each other in the office. It's sad that world lost a fine young man that loved his family as much as he did. Wade will be missed by everyone that he touched. Prayers for strength and comfort going out to Ashley, Nicholas, Trenton, and Kenleigh.
