Hello sweetheart...I just wanted to tell you happy birthday and I'm thinking of you like always. Life is pretty decent, no complaints except for you not being by my side like you should be. I love you and I miss you. Love always, your angel.

I am sitting here in tears looking through pictures back from my days in the cadets and I remember the day you came to our meeting and let me sit on your harley and turn on your blue lights...I remember it like it was yesterday. I dont really know what to say but just know that you will never, ever be forgotten...

Wes, Wanted to let you know that I miss you so very much. This is the weekend we took our first vacation together to Myrtle Beach. I'll always remember everything we did together. I miss you so much. I wanted to say a little something to let you know I will never forget. I love you...

Well, my brother:
We have entered into a new year, and it's been almost two years, since that fateful day that we lost you. I know it's been a while, but you are never, ever forgotten, and you are still loved. The angels in heaven are watching over you and Willie and I'm at peace jsut knowing that. The family is well, but Mom and Dad have a sadness that I can not truly know but only imagine. You will always remain, my brother, my hero!....Rest on bro, you are truly loved and missed, and Happy New Year with the Lord!....You are truly free now!

Never forgotten and always loved,

Your sister,

Mrs. Carolyn Mack Holley

It's a new year Wes. It's going on two long years. I still sit here and never question God why. I hope I can always have that attitude. I try to be positive in my life because I know that is what you would want. I miss you and know you are watching over me as I patrol the same roads of the county as you did. I go to work with the Wesley Mack attitude and know I represent you. I still have people walk up to me and tell me how sorry they are and how much they miss you. If strangers miss you, can people imagine how I feel? I love you and not a day goes by you are not on my mind. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I thank God for letting me be the person I am to you. I love you and always will. Your "angel" Mary....

Brother Mack,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Hey, bro:
It's been quite a while since I wrote, couldn't bring myself to do it, because the hurt is still as fresh as if it were today. There's not a day that goes by that you are not in my thoughts, when I look at your children and grandchildren, it brings it all back. I know that you and Willie are watching over us, and I pray that God will wipe these tears from my eyes, for I know that soon and very soon, we will be going to see the King also...until then, keep smiling down on us, and I will always remember your smile!.....I love you bro....Thanksgiving was not the same without you, that void can't be filled!, but I know that you're in a better place where there is no more hurt or pain, only joy and peace!.....Sleep on brother, until we meet again!...I LOVE YOU!

Will never forget you,
your big sister,

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there i do not sleep. I am the thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn's rain. And when you awaken in the mornings hush, I am the swift uplifting rush, of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there I did not die. I remember that poem brought it back for us after Uncle Willie's funeral. There are so many memories that I have of you. I remember when I first called you "DAD"....I was only 4 years old. I was the ring bearer @ the wedding, I came out to the lake by myself to spend time on the boat with you and Mom. Christmas shopping for Mom, making you something to eat at Zaxby's. When you had your heart attack, I was the only person that was allowed to sit with you in the emergency room, something about not being outwardly emotional....yeah right. I always hoped that you were proud of the things i did, I always wanted your approval. For more than 15 years you were "DAD" to me, and you always will be. You taught me so many things that no one else could ever imagine. I remember the sound in your voice when I told you about Lacey...I was so worried, but you made me feel so calm, you were so understanding....I told you before I told MOM, i knew she would flip. You should see the little girl now, she's gotten so big now, walking and talking. She was there the last time I saw you. Dont you worry, Ill teach her all the things you taught me. Thanks for coming to talk to me when I needed you most, I still see you from time to time, and I know you are just checkin in on me...Ill be fine. One day the silence will be broken, Im sure you know what I mean....but until then Ill just keep being me, and Ill do my best to be a good "DAD" as you were to me. Ill keep out of trouble, and Ill continue to come by and see you. I miss you, and Ill keep you updated, though im sure you know already....i miss you DAD, and you go with me EVERYWHERE...until we meet again...keep watching over us, it wont be long now. See YOU soon!

Well, Wesley....(T-6)
As many are writing tributes to you and thinking of you, we are still holding you dear in our hearts....each day is filled with another memory of you, when I looked at your grandson, Marquez last Sunday, all I thought about was you...He looks so much like you when you were that age....What a precious memory...I thank God every day for the memories that He has given us about you and Willie....there are so many little things that we will treasure, every time we think of you....Just today, my grandaughter, Taya said how much she thinks about you and misses! you would never think of the impact that you made on the children and how much they treasured the moments spent with you...who would have thought?......well I will always remember you, just as Mom and Dad do...they miss you so much, sometimes it hurts to see the grief on their faces, but God knows just how much we can bear, and He'll put no more on us than we can bear....We thank God every day for the memories....Rest on brother, till we meet again!

Uncle Wesley it has been a year since you have been gone and every day still seems so new when i realize your not here, it was right before you passed that you started talking to me about the different things i was going through and helping me out, i miss that we didn't get the chance to finish those conversations. I will always remember when we experienced visititng the World Trade Center Bombing Site togehter days after it happened and the different conversations we had regarding it. Taya asks about you frequently the uncle she really didn't get to spend a lot of time with. Regardless of the fact you left an impact on her you kidness your love for children, she remembers everything your house your dog your pool, it helps me it helps us, for her to remember you the way she does. Life seems so different going Down South and not being able to see you physically. I love you and will see you again on the other side of glory

On the first anniversary of your death,
we are thinking of your family and
friends who are still grieving. As a
fellow follower of Jesus I know you
are at peace in the presence of our
Lord and Savior. What a comfort that is to all believers who loved you; that
they will see you again one fine day.
Until then, may God continue to hold
you in the palm of His hand and
heal the wounded hearts of those
still missing you terribly. God is close to the brokenhearted and His
comfort knows no bounds.

Wesley this is only thing that helps me with this grief that I know the whole fasmily shares, it is to write to you:
"We Remember"
It wouldn't have hurt as much
If we didn't love you so.
It wouldn't have stung so much
If we didn't care
One year gone now
One year left alone
With the absences of your laugh
And your sweet smile now gone.
One year of tears
Turned into precious memories
One year of remembering
just what we lost
Did our tears find their way to you?
Up in heaven so sunny and blue?
Of course, we know they never could
For where you are, there are no tears
just joy being with the Lord!
Can you hear us now?
As we reminisce, of all the love from you that we miss!
As we remember how to laugh
can you see us?
As we remember how to sing
can you see us?
Yes, we remember.
Yes, we've lost
But more importantly,
we love you still.
Yes, we know,
Yes, and we look forward, too!
We'll see you again soon
At Heaven's pearly gates, because
We Remember You!

You'll Never Be Forgotten!

Lovingly submitted,
Your sister, Cookie
Mom & Dad
Children & Grandchldren
Brothers & Sisters
And the entire Mack Family,
loved ones and friends

You are and always will be our beloved son, brother, father, grandfather,uncle,cousin, and True Friend!

Unfortunately Wesley, I never got the pleasure to meet you or even see that beautiful smile I hear so much about. But somehow I feel as if I have known you for years. Not a day goes by that I don't hear something wonderful about you and your smile. Even when I'm off I often pass your cross on I-20. It amazes me how much of an impact you had on this agency. I wish I could have had the wonderful pleasure to meet you and see that beautiful smile. Watch over your brothers Wes, they miss you. GOD SPEED AND MUCH LOVE

We lost a great Deputy and friend one year ago today. Every person on this department has a special memory of you. Most remember your great smile, and glowing personality. We often recall the times you said Merry Christmas I am 10-42 or when you would say to all the moms Happy Mothers Day. It is the little things we remember that mean so much to us all. Some say we are the "Unseen Heroes" but thanks to you we were never forgotten...

You will Never Be Forgotten!!!!

Dep. Mack,
I remember the days in the cadets when you taught me so many skills and I wanted nothing more than to one day be a member of the Sheriffs Office. Well now I am so glad and so proud that I can tell you I am a dispatcher and will have been here a year at then end of August. I remember the story of the first 10-95 that you got and how excited you were about it. There are so many memories that I have and really hope that one day I can go out there and patrol just like you did. I can't believe it has already been a year to the day. We are going to 10-3 the net today and remember you and think of your big smile...

It's been a year since the day of your accident. It doesn't seem like it has been a year since you left us. I still think every once in a while that I hear dispatch call T-6 and catch myself hoping for a fleeting instant that you will answer. We miss you down here. I know that you are in a much better place, but that does not make the pain any less. I missed going to the memorial because my son was born a few days before. I wish I had been there to honor you. I still get asked about my bracelet, and I explain to them what it is for. Most of the "older" folks liken them to the POW/MIA bracelets from Vietnam. The younger kids kinda give me this look because they have already forgotten the sacrifice you made doing the job you love. After an explaination of the bracelet and letting them read it, I hope that they will remember you, even if it is just for a little while. I give praise to our heavenly father for welcoming you into his kingdom and look forward to reuniting with you again so that we may once again patrol together. I might even remember to get that traffic test from you this time.

Rest well my brother, for we hold the line in you memory and honor you with our service.

To my dear brother:
On the eve of your 1st. anniversary in heaven, as I sit here and think back to a year ago, my heart truly aches....I remember not believing what the doctors were saying....I remember talking to you and telling you to rest and not be afraid, if I only knew that that would be the last time, I could speak to you, there were so many things I could have said....but one thing I do know, you are resting with the Lord and in a much better place....We love you and miss you dearly, just that infectious smile, and boy what a smile it was!.....Happy 1st Anniversary with our Lord and Saviour, remember to take care of our brother, Willie....I can see you two up there with the Lord, boy what a time!...Willie playing the keyboard and you singing!.......I love you brother and always will, you must remember this,take your rest, because God loves you best!
We Shall Never Forget You!

Submitted lovingly by your big sister,
