. Wesley could sing Happy Birthday at the top of his lungs for anyone with a birthday! He was great at hugs, and I will miss those hugs. He was sweet and loved country western music turned up loud. He smiled when I would bring him candy, preferably chocolate! He loved to look at his photo album and point , saying "mama!" I will miss him so much, but he is in his loving mother's arms, and at peace.
