  1. Dear Wade family, you have my deepest sympathy. The death of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can gain comfort from Gods word the Bible. Acts24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection “ so you can see your dear loved one again and this is a promise from our loving Heavenly Father. I hope this was a source of encouragement for the family.
