I have not stayed in touch but, I have many fond memories spending time with Lindsay Wade and his wonderful family. Lindsay was the most loving and colorful personality and he was surrounded by the most wonderful direct family and extended family. I miss Lindsay, Spencer, Ben, and Lindsay’s mother which I have forgotten her name. Lindsay will always do well in life here on earth and beyond . He was a survivor and I was fortunate to have celebrated life with Lindsay and his family and friends. His spirit lives on. We will meet again. Trust me. Lindsay’s family and friends are in our prayers. Love, Wade S Jabo 518-466-9266 cell

  17. Daddy, I think today will be one of the hardest days of my life so far. It’s hard to believe I will never be able to see you or hear your voice again, especially on the answering machine, you always left the best messages. I feel so very sad, but happy for you at the same time because I know your no longer in pain. It was hard for us girls to see you like that the last few years. Thank you for all your words of encouragement through the years. I know you had many regets about Angel, Annie, and me and I remember you telling me you wish you could go back and do things differently. But don’t worry dad, we still love you, and regardless you helped make us who we are today, and I don’t think we turned out to bad! I’ll make sure Elijah and Dylan Jane hear about their Pappy Wade through the years, I know you wished your were able to do more with them. Well I Love You and will miss you more than words can say. I know you’ll be watching over us.

Remember your Dad has passed on, but his memory lives on in your hearts. With our love.

  19. As a newcomer to the Weirton scene in the late 1980’s, I had always heard that Lindsey was big and bad-sort of Weirton’s “junk yard dog”.

My condolences to the entire Wade family…With love, Renee
