My father was my hero, my friend, my confident, my strength in challenging times, my daddy, my father, my teacher, and most importantly, my spiritual mentor. I will miss him deeply, probably for the rest of my day here on this earth. However, I have faith that I will see him again one day and spend eternity with him.
It is a comfort to see that he was cherished by so many.
I miss you dad, so so much.

Dear Breshears Family,
Wes was a dear & loving friend to Rick & I. We enjoyed so many enjoyable times with him & Pat & also with many of you. His love for the Word of God showed every time he taught Sunday School & explained a scientific principle based on God's divine creation. Many times his explanations were way over my head but I would sit in awe as I listened to him. His love for his family & your respect & love for him was such a Godly example to us all on family relationships. My heart grieves that I was not able to bid him one final farewell, but my heart rejoices that he is now in the presence of Jesus. His body will be placed close to Rick's at Moorehead. What a blessing to know that at the Rapture, they will rise together. Will be thinking & praying for you as you lay his body to rest. My love to you all.

Dear Sister Patricia, Mike, Robert, Kathy, Toni and Betti, and to all of Bro. Wes's grandkids and family - We have all enjoyed the privilege of loving and being loved by one of the Lord's choicest servants. I have often sat in wonder with Bro. Wes as he would remark about the blessings of the Lord on his life, considering his wonderful wife and beautiful family. My time with your dad was truly a gift, and I'll not soon forget the lessons he taught to me. You are a very special family. From our hearts to yours, our prayers are with you. We love you all.
