See Ya Later, Wes & Marquita

It is a wonderful thing that as Lutherans who believe their Baptism gives them eternal life, we can always confidently speak these words of parting, regardless of health or circumstances -- "See ya later!"

Wes and Marquita -- two of those dear and gentle souls who know how to lift a pastor's spirit with their quiet confidence, steady presence, and humble satisfaction while others are complaining about manna and grumbling for quail. They both now rest in peace awaiting the resurrection of all flesh while their souls have joined the saints who have gone before them around the throne of the Lamb.

Wes Townsend: March 30, 1930 -- December 12, 2006

See ya later, Wes & Marquita!
