It has been a privilege to pray for Weston and his family. In a way we were able to “pray him home.” I am rejoicing for Weston and praying that you all will feel God’s comfort and reassurance you will be with him some day. If you are not as peace with that I have faith that our Heavenly Father will lead you to a saving faith in Jesus. Love and prayers.

We are lifting you up to yours and Weston’s Lord and Savior at this time of great loss to you. Yet how thankful we are that our loss is Weston’s gain… to be with His Savior. We praise God for providentially placing him in your family where he learned the gospel from his early youth! And we thank God for saving him, as he explained in his testimony in the video that was made. All praise to God. May others find Weston’s Savior to be theirs!

Dear Ken, Jennifer, and Lee ,
I have been praying for you during this painful time. I am so sorry for Weston ‘s death, but rejoicing he is safe with His Heavenly Father, and for this, we sorrow not as those who have no hope. How wonderful of our Heavenly Father to give us this encouragement.
The video was such a rich blessing hearing of the lessons God had taught Weston. Such a blessing to us all.
I pray the mighty hand of the Lord will be your strength and comfort.
Loving prayers for you all,
