Life Is But A Stopping Place
Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what's to be, A resting place along the road to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We all were meant to learn some things, But never meant to stay ... Our destination is a place far greater than we know. For some the journey's quicker, For some the journey's slow. And when the journey finally ends, We'll claim a great reward and find an everlasting peace together with the Lord.

We are so very very sorry for your loss. May your sweet memories and God carry you through this most difficult time. You all will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers ~
Sincerely,
Marcy and Stephen Scott

Karen & Scottie,
We were shocked and saddened to learn of the Wesley's passing. Words seem so insufficient, but know that you are in our thoughts and we pray that you find comfort in the happy memories you had with Wes. He grew up to be such a handsome man and what an adorable grandchild he has left you with. We are so very sorry.
