I love you Uncle Wade. I will never forget how many times you and Uncle Fred have rescued me. Every time I smell the hard work of car repairs I am filled with memories of the garage on Washington St. I will forever hear your voice in my head when I look at my little brother and call him Turkey Butt. I hope you are having a good time singing and dancing your heart out! Love Giggles
