Wes, I will sure miss you and your wonderful ways. A sweeter man than you is rare. I loved watching you decorate your Mom's house for holidays and plant flowers to make the yard look so pretty. I cherished our friendship very much and am so sorry you had to leave so suddenly. May you finally be pain free. To your family my deepest sympathy. You are a great loss. May your spirit send us messages to ease the pain of knowing we've lost such a beautiful person.

I remember Wesley when he was a little boy. He was so special in my eyes. He always spoke to me when I saw him into Hannaford. Wesley, you left us at a very young age. You don't have to have pain anymore. My heart goes out to his Morher, Connie, and his brother Todd Burgess, and his brother Keith Burgess ❤️ My prayers and thoughts go out to all of Wesley's family.

As a classmate, Wes was one of the best! Always kind and polite. Was fairly quiet much of the time in class, but out of class, lunch, recess, dances and the game room at the bowling he was fun to hang out with. RIP Wesley, say hi to my brother Wayne for me. Connie, Ralph, the Burgess bro's and Wesley's young family, may peace be with you all in your time of need. Prayers to each and everyone.
