It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart I announce Wade Stooksberry lost his battle with brain cancer yesterday. Although I never had the privilege of meeting of him, the words of countless others attest to the fact that he was one in a million. His wife, Bethany Peters Stooksberry, is a friend I have known since childhood.
Wade [along with Bethany and other loved ones] chronicled his valiant battle with Stage IV glioblastoma on Caring Bridge. The courage, strength, insight, faith, and humor he demonstrated in the face of an aggressive and terminal illness leaves me awestruck. Be sure to read his beautiful obituary, written by his brother, here. Rest in peace, Wade. You will feel no more pain.
Bethany, there is so much I want to say to you…but for now let me just say how sorry I am for the loss of your husband and that you are loved by so many.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
