The shockwave has spread beyond the circle of friends and family here, to wherever Rockin' & Stompin' could be heard on Saturdays for the past few decades via the airwaves at KVMR.org.
We are hearing from listeners all over the place who regularly made him a part of their lives during his Saturday radio show and his live remote broadcasts, and they feel he is a part of their family as well, and are sorely missing him.
We are gathering in Love and Support to help take care of his wife Mo (Marian) and daughterJaimie during this transition to a world without Wes.
Many needs arise in these times, and we want to be sure that the grieving and healing will not be hampered by financial worries.
We are asking for love and monetary donations to this Memorial Fund to assure that his Mo and Jaimie will have the time and resources they need to process through this tender time.
If you have ever felt Wes' generous spirit, we hope you can help here.
All are welcome to the Celebration of his Life which will take place on Saturday, March 17th, 2018 at The Miners Foundry in Nevada City from noon til 4ish.
Wake the Dead will be performing their scheduled gig that evening at 8pm at the Foundry. They have been heard regularly on Wes's show. This show is co-produced by Scott Holbrook and Keep Smilin' Productions.
