    Wesley could not have had a more loving and supportive family. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. I knew Wesley at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church when we were both children. He was always very kind to me and I will miss him.

    Dear Lucille and family,
    I was so sorry to learn about Wesley’s passing. He had challenges for many years, and was courageous throughout his life. His loving family and friends were with him as he faced all his health issues. He is at peace now and I send my deepest sympathy to his family.
