I'm sorry to hear of Wes' passing but rejoicing that he is now in heaven. I have many great memories of time with him, mostly from hunting. When we went to South Carolina, Wes and I rode together in his truck and we had some wonderful conversation and I learned many things about his life and our family that I never knew before that.
