I'm so sorry to hear of Wesley's passing. He had a wonderful sense of humor and love of life. He had great stories. One of my favorite memories of him was when he showed me some of his old photos. I loved the one where he was outside at a party holding a drink in one hand and the hand of a little girl about 3 yrs old in the other. He looked so happy.

Sorry we could not be with you today. Wesley and I had a wonderful time with the Cotillion and its many parts. Both of us were Jester Captains, President and Kings following each other. I have missed him at all of our past functions. He was one who really cared about his family and friends.

It won't be the same around here without him. He was one of the first friends I made when I came to work here. I loved to visit him in his room, listen to Jazz, and talk about "real dancing" (among other things).

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Wesley Drane Glassell our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Wesley. And to Wesley it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during WW-II while serving as in the U.S. Army. Wesley, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Wesley's family and loved ones.

I'm so sorry for your loss Ashley. I called him daddy because that's what he was to me. He was a great man. We had a lot of fun times together & I feel blessed to have been a part of his life. I loved him dearly & he will be truly missed!
