"Ordinary riches can be stolen; real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you. Oscar Wilde The two of you are one of the most lovely couples that I have ever known and you will forever be in my heart. I will miss you greatly but I will rest easier knowing that I have you watching over me.

Gonna miss our weekly talks, where we discussed many things. Usually golf always came up and you always had some tips. Our last phone call the day before West passed he kept telling me how much he loved Sharon and what an angel she was to him. West was a gentleman always and I am sure gonna miss him. My prayers are with my sister Sharon and all those that are going to celelbrate memories not only today, but in the days to come. May you draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you. West, save me a good seat.
