Dr. Wade was so kind and gentle with my mother. He helped my mother and me get through her most stressful stages of her Dementia. He will be missed by us. My prayers go out to his family.

We have to mention how great and humble a person he was. His smile was gentle and his concern was evident in his voice. He spoke with knowledge, authority and compassion. Most of all, he was a friend and treated all he met with respect and compassion. His greatest gift was himself. Condolences from our family to yours. We are here when you need us.
