Mr. Hoover and family, I would like to send my deepest sympathy to all of you. I developed a wonderful relationship with Wesley and admired him for the person he was. I enjoyed seeing him smile and talking to him about his life and his love of vehicles. I would often ask him questions on what was wrong with my vehicle and he would give me tips on how to get it fixed. I developed a motherly love for Wes and everyone at work knew he was my boy. I would do anything in my power to get him what he wanted from comfort foods to comfort medications and long talks to let him know how truly much I cared for him. I miss Wes so much but know he is in a better place whole and not in pain. I will always remember Wes and will keep you all in my prayers. God Bless !
