It is an unreal thing to lose your father. It is something we think will happen at some time, but never can actually imagine having to go through. Dad was an amazing father. He would drop everything to help us or anyone really. He always supported mom in her teaching and church work. He loved to sing hymns. He loved simple things like flowers, flying kites, and being together. Dad was always telling jokes, whistling, or dreaming. Dad loved the Lord and it showed in everything he did. I miss him so much already and although I don't understand why he had to leave us at such a young age, I am so honored that he was my Dad. I never wondered if he loved me, he always told us and always showed us just how much. May God stay with our family.

Dear Cheryl and all the family,
Suzi and I certainly are praying for you. We have grown so close over the years, and love you all so dearly. I'm stuck in Carolina for work this week, or you can be assured that we'd have come there to hug each of you. May God grant a special peace to you all. No one can ever take Wes's place in our hearts, so we'll just have to be patient until he comes back to join us in Zion as he always dreamed about.

I grew up in the neighborhood with Wesley and still remember fondly the times of playing hide and seek along with all the other games kids play. Wesley had a kind and sweet spirit then too. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.

We never lose those who have left an impression in our lives. Although not a close friend, Wes was a classmate through my early years. His humor and loving ways always stood out among his peers. For this he will be remembered fondly. Your family has my deepest sympathy at this time of divine separation from us of this mortal existence.

We will all miss Wes. He was a joy to be around. I know that many people will miss him. He gave a lot to life, and his contributions will be missed. But now he is in a much better place, with hisi heavenly father.
