    l loved Mr. Wade so much. We used to watch and discuss Carolina basketball and Durham Bulls baseball. He was such a good friend and neighbor. I am so sad that he is gone and I miss him so much. I have to remind myself that he is no longer in pain and I will see him on the other side. RIP Mr. Wade. Love, Susan Gooch

    I have had so much fun with Wade! We have spent many hours together watching Carolina Basketball, Durham Bulls Baseball and sometimes we would go down to his cabin and we would shoot our Pistols together. I have enjoyed talking to him on his front porch and onetime we got caught in the snow driving home from Walmart. I have many memories of Wade to sustain me till we meet again. Since my Dad died last December I have turned to Wade maybe more than usual for understanding. He was always there for me with a sympathetic ear. I Love Wade and always will. I miss him Loads already. Godspeed and God Bless YOU! Butch Gooch

    Dear Lonnie, Susan & the Keith Family – We appreciate seeing the pictures of Wade you posted on this site. Such a great remembrance of Wade! Brings back good memories of fun family times together when we cousins were growing up – all those long years ago. We really appreciated Wade coming to Daddy’s memorial service. It had been so many years since I (Donna) had seen him since I had moved out of state. So happy we could visit a little then. We know your hearts are broken & you will all miss Wade very much, so focus on these happy pictures of happy times together. Lonnie & Susan – we love you very much. And we send our sympathies to the rest of the Keith family. Donna & Arthur
