    Lorraine and i were good friends in school. Through her, I met Lorrain's welcoming family. In school, I was complaining about a person and when I asked Wade what he thought, he said, he wouldn't say anything because he may change his mind. This just spoke of the quality and caring person he was. I learned so much from him that day. My deepest condolences to Diane, Lorraine, Andrea, Curt and their families.
