My dear Aunt Betty and all the Wade Family,
Today is truly a very sad day for me to loose such an incredible man, my favorite uncle, Uncle Bob. So very blessed that I got to spend time with him and my Ohio family in September.
Please know that we are so blessed to have such a wonderful family, as we do. He is with all of the others that have gone before him; my mom and dad and all of our beloved loved ones. May God comfort you at this most difficult time. Wish I could be there with you to be with you but I am there in spirit. He will never be forgotten and it’s so comforting that he will be in that beautiful, little cemetery in North Fairfield, Ohio. Love you all, Niece Donna & family from Miami Florida

Thinking of you all! Praying you are all able to find comfort during this difficult time. Take comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain and that he was a wonderful man that we were all blessed to have known and to have had in our lives in one way or another. Sending my love and prayers
