    My best friend and husband. It’s only been 3 days but it seems like forever.Thank you for all that you were and all that you did for me over these 19 years. Thanks to the doctors and nurses your family and I were able to be with you in those last hours. You were so strong and brave through out it all. May God now hold you in his arms and you are now free of pain. I love you and always will.

    We were very sad to lose you Wes. To Joan you were more like a brother than a cousin. We spent many years together and it is so hard to accept that our time is now over. Thank you for all your kind words, support and deeds. We will carry your memory with us in our hearts.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Wes’ passing. We were friends during the late 60’s – early 70’s before my wife, Gail and I moved to Alberta. We worked at J L Taylor together and we quickly became good friends (attached at the hip). We lost touch but I still thought of him often. Please accept my condolences on your loss. He will be sadly missed.

    I want to send my condolences to Marilyn, Joanne, Steve and Joan Tara and Erin, Friends and family of Wesley. Wesley was my co-worker but most importantly he was my friend. Even though we are grieving apart now I hope eventually we can all come together and share stories of this wonderful person that has touched so many of our lives.

    To Wes’s family and friends I am so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Wes for many years. We’ve shared many conversations, teasing and joking around. I am heartbroken to hear of his passing but have comfort in knowing he is in the arms of God. Hold tight to fond memories and may his presence live on through them.

    I’m so sorry Marilyn, uncle Wes was the best uncle! Had the best time hearing all the stories of montys bay and having my first hard lemonade with him as well. It’ll be so hard not having uncle Wes around miss him all ready!! Love you Marilyn!
