I wanted to reach out to you for your support to my family. We have just returned from a tree planting in Weston's name at his fraternity Phi Kappa Tau.
The first recipient of the "live today the Weston way" was Ryan Gentry. This will be a yearly selection thanks to your donations.
We miss Weston deeply, but your love and support has made our journey just a little bit easier.
Wayne, Becky, Colin, Gavin, Amy and all extended family

Becky, Colin, Gavin and I would like to thank everyone who has reached out to show their love and support for our family. Weston, we love and miss you.
Weston, I know you are in a better place now....I did not know you but you were a friend of my youngest son, Darren. Darren told me that you were a wonderful guy, a good friend, and dedicated to your family. Tears flow now, as I write these words to you....I am so sorry that your life was so short....the world needs so many good people like yourself...it is filled with so much evil and wrong-doers, that it needs people like you to lift us all up. I am not feeling sad for you....I am sure that the Lord has great things for you ahead....but I am sad for your family and the rest of us....I know that Darren was heartbroken at the news of your passing....he like you, has a heart that is still young and a little naive, but the innocent heart that feels the pain of loss even more than those of us who have grown to be so cynical in this imperfect world. You were just beginning to flourish and use your talents and strengths that were blessings from God. The world would have been so much better with you in it. I will pray for your family and your friends....your senseless loss and not knowing how you really passed must be so painful for them. I am sorry that you died all alone and with so many dreams and goals not yet realized. I know that those who knew you will continue to offer prayers for you...and your loved ones. I ask that you do the same for us as we go on in this world. Please pray for your family that they may be strengthened. Pray for your friends that they may learn about the fragility of life, how it can be so boistrous one moment and then over the next. Pray that they use your passing as a reminder to enjoy life and life's blessings and to focus on what is important...faith, family, friends. I pray that one day you and I will meet each other, and you will maybe offer me the kiss of peace as I join you in the loving company of the faithful. May God bless you and welcome you into His kingdom.
