We were saddened to hear about your Dad,GrandFather, Brother's death. I have many fond memories of assisting Wade at the bank in Anna many years ago. Also my brother Robert Lee spend many nights with Derryl when they were young boys. Our love and prayers are with all of you. Ruth Ann (Brown)Ingram, August 15, 2008 I remember stopping by to see Uncle Wade and Aunt Johnnie in Trenton with mama and daddy. I always loved my visits with him. He used to tease my husband all the time when we were dating and always liked to visit with us in Bonham. Uncle Wade is an icon of great men of a generation past. Always polite, sincere, full of fun and always loving. There when you least expect him and always wanting to do good for others. My heaven is one star brighter with his presence there and I expect any night now to see a shooting star letting me know that he knows I love and will miss him. My sincerest sympathies to the family. My life was blessed with his presence.
