My Friend Wade Portee
Good Evening World....
I want to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to my good Friend and Brother....Wade Portee in Maryland.
Wade and I lived around the corner from each other in Newark and both ended up in East Orange where we were part of "The Crew". ( The 7 BADDEST BRUTHAS in EO)
We graduated from High School and both entered the United States Air Force.
I did 1 1/2 years in the Air Force, and Wade retired with about 25 years.
While stationed in Illinois, he met his wife Jennifer, and they created 3 beautiful children (as you can see in the picture above,they are not children anymore)
Although always being stationed in many places, Wade was always the 1 who would show up at anything we were doing in our lives to support us.
Every funeral,every cookout,every political function, every inauguration.
Wade also managed to earn a Bachelors and a Masters Degree while in the Military.
What an accomplishment!!!
We wanted to suprise him and show up at his graduation,but could never get the dates right.
I am so proud of my friend Wade and his beautiful family.
God Bless You Wade...and your Family.
