It grieves me deeply to learn about Wes passing. All those years having fun playing on the softball team together. And that team was a collection of characters. All good people. My condolences to Cathy and all the McDaniels family.

So sorry for your loss,Wes was a great man who taught me so much about wireline, even after he retired I could call him for advice or just to blow off steam,his phone number has been and will always remain as "Wes the Legend", I'd like to be there today but have a leg injury that limits my mobility, I will definitely be there In spirit
