We love your family, and miss you. Both Wes and Mary are dear to us. 1990, ups and downs that year. It's when are love for you grew leaps. Getting to know Lori on the Hugo trip. And then the news about dear Mary and the stroke. We love all you guys. Our sympathy to you

Sorry for your loss. He was a great 1st boss of mine at Kool Kone. I still have to have the bills in a cash drawer straight because that’s what we had to do there.
# Heather LeValley 2023-10-20 17:30
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Thinking of you during this difficult time.
