By the graces of you and your family, we were able to build our house next door to yours. You helped us raise our family and set up good example for us to go by. We were very lucky to have you as our neighbor and church family. May God always bless you and your family with knowing your job of sharing God's love was well done. My sympathy ie with you and yours.

Dear Wade family,

I was so very sorry to learn of Chad's passing. He was a wonderful man. I first learned to know him through Job's Daughters (a million years ago!) Then saw him daily when he and Geraldine moved into Union City's Assisted Living. Please accept our deepest condolences and sympathy Geraldine, Pam, Roxanne and Holly.

We were so sorry to hear about the passing of Chad yesterday in the Early Bird. Jim and I remember seeing you in the Old Piqua Mall! That was along time ago,but it was so nice to visit a little. And then again when you came to the Welbaum & Lavy Reunions.
We will be praying for you and your family. We would like to visit with you again.
