Wesley, my best friend whom I had known since we were in knee-pants (and you know how I feel about that) died three years ago today. Scarce a day passes but I think of him.
I have written on STSTT a bit about my experiences as a Western Union messenger. Perhaps a year after I started that job, Wes was also hired there. How cool is that, to have your best friend working with you, competing with you for "top board"?
For my fifty-sixth birthday, Wes put together a memento of our times at the old office. He located and sent to me a messenger's working kit which I share with you here.
Wes, until the Marriage Supper of the Lamb!
