From Captain George Jetton:
Leigh just called this morning to let us know Wes went home to be with his Lord last night. His services are pending and we'll let you know when the funeral/memorial service has been arranged. Betty and I are going to Denton to be with the family today and will hopefully know more later this evening. Please pray for Bettye, Leigh, Les and their families. They know Wes is in a better place, but their sorrow is great and he will be missed by all.
Please pass this on to others.

Wes is not doing well at all. They have moved him to the Alzheimer's unit of the home and may be moved to another facility at a later date. The West Nile Virus has taken its toll on Wes causing severe dementia. The family has ask that he have no visitors at this time.
We all need to say a whole bunch of prayers for both Wes and Betty.
