Excellent story. Thank you for sharing.I miss him too, @QuilterFrawg
I prolly never told you all this, but maybe I did. You want to know how nice a guy Wes was? For years, he chided me about not having a class ring. It genuinely didn't bother me but I guess it did him. Heck I don't even wear a wedding ring.
Anyway, one day when I went to visit him down in Georgetown, Claire met me at the front door and said he had a surprise for me. I went in there where he was lying in his bedroom in his hospital bed, and he gave me HIS class ring (Geology), which I cherish more than I ever would one of my own. I see it and touch it daily (although I don't wear it--his fingers were bigger than mine!).
Wes was just a very, very good dude. Always thinking about other people. Great sense of humor. I have only ever met one person who didn't like him, and that's no exaggeration.
