Doc and his buddies Ray, Jim, and Travis, were 4 of my favorite members at Willowisp. I SO looked forward to seeing them in the golf shop for their 8 AM tee time during the week. Ann was one of the sweetest members as well. I miss them both.
It was a delight to have visited with you every 10 days or so before and after Ann passed away. I know the two of you were so found of one another and missed each other. I'm so happy you are with her now in your eternal home. My sympathy goes out to your family.
Memories. I remember nights watching surgery slides as the family gathered in what we all called the "Log Cabin" in the Forest Hill Community. East of Memphis. I hated to look at those things. But, those smoking damaged lung pictures made an impression every time I thought about smoking. I remember the day I learned to ski while Wade was driving his boat. I remember the thanksgiving day the families from AL and ours from TN and AR drove to Houston for a get-together. Patsy was there. I remember the last time I saw Wade. At Granddaddy Etheridge's funeral. There are more memories. All filled with appreciation for the time I was able to spend with him, and admiration for the man he was. Now, I rejoice in the knowledge that his hurts are no more, and that one day we'll all be together in God's eternal paradise. No more sicknesses for Wade to heal 'cause Jesus will have cured them all. His family is in our prayers.
You have greatly influenced our lives through your wonderful, loving, generous daughter and granddaughters. Our deepest sympathies to them and their families. Rest in peace, Dr. Etheridge.
Rest in peace, Wade. You are now with your dear "Sug" and dancing again together in Heaven. I will never forget you and my dear "second Mother," Ann. My love to your family. Dottie Hanko
