Not sure what to say?

I am sorry to be so late in writing a note but have thought of Wes since we last talked before Easter. We met in 1972 and shared notes and had similar backgrounds though we did not know some until he wrote his memoirs. I thank God for having known Wes and offer my prayers and thoughts for Joyce, children and family in Kansas.

I feel so fortunate to have had a brother like Wes. We had a wonderful childhood in a wonderful family.
He was so faithful to take our widowed mom & I on trips all over the US, but my favorite were to Europe, South America, Central America, Mexico, Canada.
As Wes fought a courageous battle with cancer, he was faithful to fly out to Kansas every few months to be with mom & help me with her as Alzheimers began it's unrelenting attack.
Wes showed me how to live...

Thinking of you, Joyce. Hug!

Wes was wonderful. He and I have been fighting this "evil disease" as he called it and he was such and inspiration to me. When I was in Boston for the stem cell transplant, he kept in touch and told me interesting place in the area. At the time he was in a study at Mass Gen. and it is reassuring to have someone to give guidance - he was never too busy to help with nutrition needs or any question I would have. I will miss him!

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

Dear Joyce:
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love, Joan and Kim Peterson

Al , the girls, and I all loved Wes. He always thought of others before himself. I will never forget the wonderful lunch he made for us one Sunday afternoon. It was the first time I had ever had Banana's Foster. He will be so missed. We love you.
Al, Janie, Elizabeth, and Hannah Wassynger

Dear Joyce,

Our sincere condolences to you and your family on Wes' passing.


We are thinking of you at that time. Wes was a great friend and inspiration to me. I will always remember him.
