This week they unveiled a road named in your honor. I always tried so hard in school and other activities to success you just wanted to fish and hunt. I guess at the end of the day you showed me how to be remembered. It's still hard to believe you are gone and it's never been the same without you. Mom has never served another Cherry O Creme pie but I'm sure if I dropped Kyle's banana pudding I would be sent to the store so she could fix another one before he arrived. You would be really proud of him. He has turned out to be so much like you and a great husband. I see both you and Elena in him but he is definitely your son. Thanks for providing us so many great stories that we can tell during the Holidays. Of course, Elena and Kyle keep coming up with new ones :). Little brother you are missed more than I can ever say even after all this time!

August 5 every year since your accident is a tough day for me my friend. We in law enforcement try to prepare ourselves daily for anything that comes our way but I can testify to the fact there is nothing you can do to prepare yourself for the loss of a brother when there is nothing you can do to help. But I can hear you saying we do what we gotta do and carry on cause that's our job.. R.I.P. big guy...your soft spoken and kind demeanor is dearly missed but will never be forgotten, you were a one of a kind. See ya again one day!!

Thought about you this weekend as Elena, Karie, and I had a girls weekend. How you used to tell us we sounded like a bunch of hens cackling when we all got together. Not a family gathering goes by that someone doesn't tell a story about you. You are so much more than a brother-in-law to me and so much more than an uncle to my girl's. You'd be so proud of Kyle, he's like you in so many ways. We miss you everyday, but we will see you again.

Wes I think of you often, I sure miss those talks we used to have about squirrel hunting. You were and still are a great friend. It is hard to believe that is has been six years since I saw you last. There are many things that keep you close at hand. When I see a green truck, another warden, are just a walk in the woods. I know you are close at hand watching over us. God Bless you Wes.

Another year has passed without you by my side. I would expect each year to be easier, but they aren't. I miss you dearly everyday. I think I am going fishing soon so send me a big one. It will be the first time in 6 years won't be the same without you!!


August 4, 2009

Hey Wes,

It's hard to believe it had been 5 years. Seems like just yesterday we were chasing shrimpers on Galveston Bay, fishing with Kyle and Elena, frying fish with Garry and Robert in one of our garages, and picking blueberries together.

It was an honor training you and having you as a partner. Just wanted to let you know I think about you every day and that you will always be remembered. Take Care...Dale
