    Dear Barbara, some of our greatest and funniest memories are those spent with you and Wes. All the times we went out to eat, taking the dinner train on our anniversary and the Algoma train into Canada on another anniversary. We had to stop tho when the guys decided to make their own Lunch Boat and call it the “dingy Wilm”. What a guy. We love him and wait patiently on Jehovah to bring him back. We also keep you in our prayers to remain strong and lean on Jehovah till we’re all together in the new world. We love you, Mike and Wilma

    We enjoyed the time we spent with Wes and Barbara when we first arrived in Michigan back in 1996. They were in the first congregation we served and helped us get off to an enjoyable start. Wes was very kind to us and although not offering any unsolicited advise was helpful on more than one occasion. Thanks.

    the most fabulous man I have ever had the pleasure to know ! He so missed especially for his watchtower study he conducted. Barbra I am so sorry for this loss of yours. No words can express. Barbra I love you , you are like a mother to me and that is more important than you could know.

    Dear Barbara:

    I only recently was informed of Wesley’s death. All these years passed since his death, yet I never received word. I am so sorry for your loss. And, as you probably know, I lost my dear Ellie back in 2007. Only after six years did I remarry a sister I dated back in 1961, when she was 18 and I was 23. Anyway, the loss of a mate is devastating, to say the least. Even though it has been so long since your losing Wesley, I send heartfelt condolences. May our loving God, Jehovah, comfort your heart. And, Barbara, I have fond memories, some even humorous, of our times together in upstate New York. With these few words expressed I send warm love and gentle, virtual hugs. Your brother, Chuck Valorz
