    Dear Ella and family. Yes, Wes is not here with us anymore. However, he lives forever in our memory. Wes was a great companion to my husband John. Somehow they clicked and appreciated each other. Wes was helping John, and vice versa. We miss him…
    Ella, know that I am there for you. We will not see each other across the hall, but I am there if you need to talk. I have become quite fond of you and hope to see you again. With all my love, Marianne van den Heuvel

  18. Sam says:

    There are no words. No great word to describe how I feel or how much I miss you. There is a quote I heard once. “When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure”. You are a treasure for me Papa. I love you very much and miss you even more.
