Friends, so terribly sad to share with you that our great friend, artist Wade Wharton of Huntsville passed away this morning.
AL.com is updating the story, as the circumstances are very distressing.
Hard to know what to do or say right now — just in such disbelief — have been talking with the family all this morning and there is so much love in the world for the genuinely wonderful human being and spirit of Wade Wharton, a gentle creature with so much creativity and warmth and ohmygosh just one of the most terrific laughs G-d ever put into anyone.
Wade loved people and we all loved him right back. We’ll love him forever.
I will update with funeral arrangements once they are made.
