Jeannie and Boys, we are so sorry to hear about the passing of Wes. I remember the fun times we all had playing cards, shrimp feasts, and beef and beers we all attended at the Christiana Fire House. Where has the time gone. I especially remember the trip to the Poconos where Sam put your boots on and tried skiing. You have lots of fun memories of Wes I am sure as we all do he, will surely be missed by everyone who had the opportunity to know and love him. Sorry we will not be able to be with you on Wednesday, but, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and the boys. May he rest in peace.
