|I just saw this today, I am so very sorry for your
loss. Wes was a wonderful man, we would have
attended the service had we known. Cindy, my heart
breaks for you, I never knew 2 people more in love!
I pray God wraps you in his arms until you & Wes
are reunited. |
|I want to give my deepest love for you and your family. I've met
Wes one time and he made an impact on my life. And when
we would talk on the phone he'd always had me laughing with
his funny jokes and I'm going to miss hearing his mouth in the
background. But rest in peace Wes thank you for touching
others lives including mine. |
||Paul & Judy Stacy
|We are so sorry for your loss and express our deepest sympathy to all the Ford family. Wes married us in 1988 at Melvin Hill Church of the Brethern in Green Creek, North Carolina. He was our dear friend and we had a lot of good times together. We will never forget his love and kind heart. Our prayers are for the Ford family.|
|I am so sorry for your loss.My prayers are with you
all.He was a wonderful person.He was a great friend
||Mary Lou Street Hawk
|So sorry to hear this news. I could always count
on Wes to make me laugh when I needed it most. I
will miss his calls to ask me "Can you hear me
now?" I would have loved to hear him sing "Long
Black Train" one more time.|
||Christie Hutcherson Fox
|I knew Wes from Community Church of
the Brethren in Cleveland Alabama
many years ago. I remember the day he
baptized me in the river. I also
remember how fascinated he was about
the cross that was made into the
pulpit that my Pawpaw Hutcherson had
built. Wes asked my Pawpaw if he
carved it like that. "No" my pawpaw
said, "I didn't even know that was
there." Wes knew that it was God
working through my pawpaw's hands,
and it made Wes feel special to stand
at the pulpit knowing it was God's
work. I think we all felt special
about that but especially Wes and my
Pawpaw. Wes was a very sweet and dear
man and my thoughts and prayers go
out to the family. I will miss you
Wes. See you again soon.
|The Ford Family, so sorry for your loss, he will be missed her on earth, but know the heavenly host are rejoicing. The time that I knew Wes he showed his heart for the Lord's ministry. He had a love for music and sharing his talent for the Lord. Prayers for your family and God's love and His presence at this time.|
|DEAR FORD FAMILY, MY PRAYERS,AND SYMPATHY, GOES TO
ALL OF YOU, MY PRAYERSGOES TO HIS WIFE, SHE WAS SO
KIND TO ME WHEN MY HUSBAND WAS IN NHC REHAB, GOD
BLESS EACH OF YOU. HELEN|
|Danny and I are going to mourn our evenings rocking on the front porch with Wes. His humor and stories will be sorely missed. His kind gentle spirit will stay will us till we meet again. |
||Karen (Hopson) Ralston
|My heart is broken for the Family! Wes was a good man , kind
to everyone and never knew a stranger. I am proud of him
following the Call of the Lord. That is a hard road to travel. In
his teen years he was apart of a ministry with my family. He
loved being apart of anything to do with music. I have not met
his wife and children and grandchildren, but I know they will
miss him greatly. And Craig, Sheila , and Jerry, I'm so sorry for
your loss. But I know it won't be long till we all see him again.
And all our love ones that have gone on home before us. I
pray Gods peace upon you all , at your time of need.|
||Martha Archer and Jance Weaver
|Cindy,Wes always made us feel so welcome when we
visited New Hope with Judy. Thank you both for your
|Dear Cindy and Ford Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I haven't
seen him in years, but the picture of him I
just saw captures the Wes I remember perfectly.
I remember Wes as always with a smile on his
face and a ready laugh. He was such a good soul
and will be so missed. My family and I will be
thinking of and praying for you and your
children and the entire Ford family.
