Condolence & Memory Journal

Wes has been on my mind for the past several days and I just found that he passed away only a month or so ago. I am so sorry that I did not know, and that I had not been in touch with Wes over the past year or so. Wes and I were good friends going back to our years of working together at GE on Taylor Street. He was always a strong, intelligent, conscientious, and kind fellow, to whom I could look for a word of wisdom or consolation. I am so sad that I can no longer give him a call and chat. This is a real loss for me and I wish God's blessing of peace over all the family.

Burns family,
Our sincere condolences at this time of Wes's death. Our family attended Curves Missionary Church growing up with many memories. Wes and my brother Rex were the same age and friends for many years. May our Lord Jesus give you his peace and comfort at this time.

Wes was my first boss, at DOTCO in Hicksville OH, in the data processing department. I learned a lot from him both from a professionalism standpoint as well as coding and programming design. One of my favorite assignments of my entire career was one he designed - the Material Requirements Planning system we used for years. Wes was also a lot of fun - we had some great department times!
