To the family of Wesley Wood, I send my love and my prayers.  I didn't know Wesley personally, but throughout the years our paths would cross, because of Wayne & Gerie, and I respected and admired him.  He was a bright light in this little town.  I will think of him fondly and with a smile on my face.  God bless all.  Christie

There will be no more Christmas at Grandma & Grandpa Wood's but one thing that can never be taken away are the memories that I have of both of them. I will miss Grnadpa but as everyone else has said we know that you are with Grandma and with that you are at peace and with the both of you together once again the heavens will shine and rejoice for the love you have left in our hearts and all the memories you have given us. Tell Grandma that I love and miss her.
