We will always miss you Wes!! You had the gift to touch people’s hearts!
Glenda, I’m very sorry for your loss.
I will always remember Wes. Although we didn’tsee each often, when we did it was great catching up and reminiscing about when we were kids and his family would come to visit. Rest In Peace Wes
When I heard the news yesterday from my brother, I was as shocked and saddened. Not 3 hours before, I was thinking about Wes, comparing my disposition towards life with his. I was wondering to myself, “Do other people hold me in the same regard as those who know Wes? If asked, would those who know me say I am kind, generous with my time and insight, and just a genuine person?” Strange, really, the timing of these things. I really think that was his way of touching my life yesterday; reminding me to always be kind to and appreciative of others. Whether I was a recent college grad with a negative net worth or a father of 4 in my 50s, Wes always treated me the same—with kindness, curiosity and respect. You will be missed, my friend.
Will miss him. Have some great memories of Wayne. One was he loved Fritos crushed up and put on a sandwich or in pasta dish. He was funny and serious at the same time. Loved his wife and life in Oregon will be missed
I’m so terribly sorry to hear about your loving husband. I will be praying that God will give you comfort during this time of grief.
Glenda, Thought I would let you know, you’re on my mind. Hoping today is just a little better than yesterday, and tomorrow will be a little better than today. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family.
Thank you Wes for allowing me the brief opportunity to know and work with you. God bless and Godspeed my friend.
