We were reading the news and saw a sweet little boy pop up on the obituaries and felt compelled to reach out to the family. Although we may not know you, we are heartbroken for your loss. Our prayers and comfort go out to the family and friends at this time. May God wrap his arms around you all at this time and give you peace that surpasses all understanding.

Wade loved his friends at Wed. night church, and we all loved him. I had a conversation a few weeks ago with Brianna about how sweet, easy-going and precious he was. He loved his books, especially ones with pictures of fire trucks, tractors and excavators, or anything else with a motor! He also loved to sing "Jesus Loves Me." Wednesday Night Nursery won't be the same for a long time! Our thoughts and prayers are with you, especially during this already difficult time of "lack of hugs" because of this virus!!
