2 Tim 1 v9-10

God “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling,not according to our works,but according to HIS OWN PURPOSE and GRACE,which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,but is now made manifest by the appearing of our saviour Jesus Christ,who hath ABOLISHED DEATH,and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:”

*** Because Tucker knew the lord and saviour and abided in christ, Tucker is alive, right now, in eternity with God! ***

We have been and will continue to pray for Colton, Ashley and the rest of the family in their time of mourning.I want to openly express my gratitude for Tucker’s gift of fond memories and sound advice in my times of ambivalence. Dear father in heaven I thank you for the inspiration of Tucker’s life upon my own.

Patti- I have a small gift that I beleive will be of some benefit to you and Colton in the upcoming days, weeks and months. Please call me with your address so that I may mail it to you.540-377-5545. Collect is fine. May the loving hands of God Bless you,keep you, and sustain you.

Dad,

As the days go by I feel as If they get harder and harder with you being gone. I catch myself daydreaming in class about all the good times we had. I wished so much that you could be here for my ring dance. Now, I look on and think about graduation and who is going to walk me down the isle. So many things run threw my head everyday.About a week ago I was watching the grammys and that song “If I could dance with my father again” came on and all I could do was sit there and wish you could be here.Thou you arn’t there in person…I know you are there.

I love you Dad,

Ashley Wade

From:

The heart of your loving sister:

To my loving brother; Thomas Allen Wade AKA: Tucker:

My childhood memories growing up with you, by my side will never be forgotten. Nor will your compassion, loving care and your boyish way of protecting me.

Dear God, please take my brother into the sweetest corner of your kingdom. For Tucker is with you and shall remain so forever until we meet again.

Your Loving Sister,

Hey there Tucker….well its been a while and I just wanted to write a little as the anniversary of your funeral is in a few days. I have to admit I have really started doing my own thing with a wonderful man in my life. But I am sure you know that ; I have made a great effort to get closer to my family and spend more time with the ones that mean the most and stop worrying about other people and focus whats really important…I have had a wonderful year, stressful but I can’t complain, the year ahead has much in store…I am auditioning for Grease on Broadway….it may just be a dream come true..but in the mean time I am just working at the firm, I have a house, a man, and plans of a beautiful wedding in teh future…my dad is doing wonderful and so is my mom and sister…the kids are great! I love you dearly and it’s a shame that I had to learn a lesson on life through what you did. But thats life as a whole I guess. XOXO.

Hey Tucker!

Even though you would think I would be over signing this book, I could do it every day if I didn’t already think you knew what was going on in my life! haha…and yes things are still wonderful..my dad is FINALLY slowing down with working. I am so happy for him and my mom, they MAY even find time to be with eachother and take a short vacation. My sister is great, they just added on and the kids are great. My job is wonderful, getting promoted faster and faster, my house is wonderful, Justin is great, and life could not be more stress free. I miss you terrible and wish that you were here to come back to the pool when we open back up. I love you and so does everyone else. I have learned a lot since last year and that is not harbor any hatred toward anyone. I have moved passed that and refuse to let that kind of thing get the best of me…our life is as long as we make it, and as happily as we make it. Thats why we were all given our OWN lives. Big hugs and kisses and please look down over all of us.

Love Always,

Katie ;

Hi Tucker!! Guess it’s just you and me on this thing!! haha!! Hope you are enjoying your view up there!!! If you can do me a favor, Marshall has a friend Ryan Welch that should be up there with you as well…could you maybe let him know that Marshall loves him and misses him everyday still. And let him know we still talk about him!! Tucker I still think about you at LEAST once a day. That will never change. I get married next year to Marshall and I am just so overjoyed! I have asked Ashley to be in my wedding. It’s the closest we can get to you being there but we will think of you and toast to you! I hope you are happy with us and you brother. I knwo he misses you. This time of year is still very hard…I do love you and am sad that I didn’t really get to tell you that a lot before….but I hope you know….

We miss you everyday….

Hi Tucker….well just me again…I guess you already know that Paw Paw is joining you up there in the place with no pain. Tell him I love him and I’m very fortunate to have had him at my wedding. My dad is having a time. So strong of course, but so sad…especially me, I just hate for him to have lost both of you, but I guess there is a reason for everything….I guess. Got to get back to work. I love you.

Hi Uncle Tucker! I’m Katie WILSON now! Haha!! Ashley will soon be getting married too! Today is a rather sad day and I have become rather addicted to talking to you on here…makes me feel like your still listening. I love you dearly and I want you to know that everything is ok here but I miss you very much and I know my dad does too but I think everyday is a “little” bit better. I love you.

I am very sorry to hear about Tucker. Even though I haven’t seen him in many years he was a always a very dear friend of mine, during high school and after. I could always count on him. He will be missed greatly.

I grew up with Tucker and graduated with him in the Kempsville class of 1978. I posted his notice on our class web site at http://www.kempsville1978.com. My sister and I also played softball with Lisa for may years. My family still lives at our home place at 217 Capot Road. Tom was a very quiet, loveable soul, always willing to help others, and I am certain that he is honoring our Lord with his presence in Heaven. I will miss him, but he will be in my memories forever…….

I’m Not Here

Don’t stand by my grave and weep

For I’m not there, I do not sleep

I am a thousand winds that blow

I am the diamonds glint on snow

I am the sunlight on ripened grain

I am the gentle autumn’s rain

When you awaken in mornings hush

I am the swift upfliting rush

Of quient birds in circle flight

I am the soft stars that shine at night

Do not stand at my grave and cry

I am not there, I did not die.

I guess no one comes to this website anymore….but I think of you so often and there is no place else to express thoughts to you except in my mind. I miss you and I remember so many happy times with you at our house when you were younger. Always teasing Mary and Katie…me telling you I was going to “knock your head off.” It has been a year but my thoughts go to you often. I miss you as does your brother. He gets angry so much of the time and I think it is because of you and how much he misses you. Penny

I was saddened to read about Tucker in the paper. It has been many years since I had seen him but the first thing I could picture was his wonderful smile. We were friends with the Wade’s when Wade Masonry had the softball team. I was closest to Debbie at that time but have very fond memories of the fun we all had back then.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. May God Bless each of you.

With Loving thoughts to all,

Susan Harris

Merry Christmas Tucker! A lot has changed since my last log in..no more Justin…which turned out to be a blessing, you may have had something to do with that! haha..I am now with Marshall, and if you were here then I think you actually have met him. My life has made a huge turn for the better and things just keep getting better. Marshall has the approval of everyone in my family and I am so excited to be with him. He completes me in so many ways. The kids are crazy!! My mom and dad are good. New roof on the house and just a lot of little things going on ; But all up hill! Ready for a New Year with Marshall and my family and friends! Still at the firm working hard and things are great. I love and miss you dearly…but I know you are here, Please keep an eye on everyone, I love you Tucker….

This is the first time I’ve actually signed this guestbook…as I write how I feel my heart hurts for my brother…He is the spiiting image of you…I still don’t know why you did what you did, but WE miss you…If your other family missed you as much as we do, then they would be here for your great little boy…Mom is doing a great job of raising him and Ariel on her own, but I’m sure you know that…I still don’t understand why people have to act the way they do…I guess they don’t know the true meaning of family…But we did and we miss you being here but you will always be a part of our family!

It has been several years since he and I have spoken but he has and never will be forgotten.I am so glad to hear he new the Lord and I look forward to seeing him again someday. God bless his family and friends.

Tucker will be greatly missed by our family. He lived across the street from us and it won’t be the same without him in the neighborhood and we are deeply saddened.

We will try our best to make it a special time for her but it won’t be the same without you. We miss you….so much.

Uncle Tucker,

Ashley is right, words cannot describe what the feeling is like not having you here. But if you were here you sure would be proud of her. I have spent some quality time with Ashley and we have shared many great laughs, and many more to come. She looked like an angel from above on the night of her Ring Dance. She is so responsible, beautiful and has your sense of humor. I love and miss you very much. In my prayers always and forever.

Uncle Tucker,

It has been about a month since I last wrote. But I just wanted see if anyone had written and to let you know that we are doing ok. I still worry about my dad. It really has had an effect on him. But I am praying for him and you as well. I love and miss you dearly!

Uncle Tucker, well I just thought of you last night, watching American Idol and thinking of the last time I hung out with Ashley we heard that song “Dance with My Father Again” the song seems just keep popping up. Like my mom said there is just no where to express my feelings except in my mind. I still can see how sad my dad is everyday when I come over to visit. I do wish things were different. and I do wish that you were still here to come swimming this summer. I love you!
