    Wade, you will be missed by so many people. When meeting you for the first time when I was at your diner, you were so welcoming and appreciative of your customers. Your laugh and enthusiasm for your work was impressive. It's a shame, you finally got your dream of having your own restaurant and were taken from us way too soon. Will miss your sense of humor and of course, your wonderful cooking. Will be thinking of you everytime we eat in your diner.
