    I don't know what to say...... Except that my family and my prayers go out to Wes, his family, and everyone else touched by this tragedy. God bless you all.

    Not many things in this world will leave me speechless. There's always hope, especially in the case of a guy like Wes. He was born into NABR as a brother. And as so, no matter what we will always remember him as one. He is family. We're all hoping and praying for you Wes.

    Agh...horrible news. I'd been holding my breath on posting hoping he would pull through. Here's hoping for a miracle when they take him off.

    Fuck, I don't know what to say about Wess. I remember first meeting him at Maplegrove when we debuted the Talon maybe 8 years ago, since then we always kept in touch. He was always cool as shit, very soft spoken, very resilient. Lesser people would have given up on DSM's a long time ago. He had become in recent years a very talented fabricator as well. He is one of the NABR members that I could ask any favor of and he would do it for me, as I would do for him. I was so looking forward to seeing him bring his car back to PA and get back to racing like he so wanted to do.

    Godspeed buddy.

    I really didn't want to read the rest of that post as I started in.

    I've seen the post from his wife 3 times, and everytime I do it knocks the wind right out of me. May God be with both him and his family. This sucks.

    Wes will always be remembered for what he's done for us as a family and as friends. He was one of the definite good guys taken too soon.

    Best wishes to his family.

    It's just not right. These are the times that make me think what the fuck is the point of half of this shit. All the good people get taken so early, it's just not fair. I just can't believe it.

    My condolences to Wesley's family and good friends. Another NABR member taken too soon. I'm so sorry.

    I'm another who has never met Wes personally but I always read his posts and talked to him a few times via PM. He always shared and always helped. I was really looking forward to him moving back to PA figuring if he was back within an hour or so of me, I'd finally get to meet him and maybe have a chance to give him some business. He has always been one of the guys I look up to.

    You are already missed Wes. Rest in Peace.

    Best we can do at this point is get the funds to the family. Lets give them one less thing to worry about.
