Wes was a kind and wonderful friend to my Dad (and my mom and myself), he was always a welcoming and friendly face to see and no matter how long it had been since the last time I had seen him he always made you feel special and so happy to see him again. What an incredible guy to have had the privilege to know. And what an amazing family all around.
