    Jane, Jill, Mike, Beth and families,
    So sad to read of Wes passing away. My husband, Bill, introduced me to the Forman family 40 years ago, and what a blessing it is to have known them through the years. Bill had a special place in his heart for Wes.
    After your time of grieving, may all the good memories and times spent with Wes bring peace and comfort to your broken hearts.
    You shall remain in my heart, thoughts, and prayers during this sad time, and the days to come.

    Thank you, James, for your comments. Scouting was a big thing in the Firman family. His dad, himself & his son, all Eagle Scouts. His nephew, David was a scout & member of Order of the Arrow, as well. We will miss him.

    I am sorry to hear of Wesley’s passing. We were members of the Order of the Arrow, a Scouting organization, back in the ‘60s, but I lost track of him after college. I see that he had a distinguished career in the Air Force, which is no surprise. Believe it or not, his name comes to mind when I pass through EBR’s Deerford community, because I knew that he grew up in that area.
