Another year, Wes, and I still think often how bright is my memory of you and the good times I enjoyed with you and Ellen and the boys. I still cherish every day the examples of your craft when I snap on my belt and close it with my Emmons belt buckle and of course your handsome ring is on my finger always as a reminder of you.

Back in the late 1960s I was wondering around Philadelphia and found Wesley’s silver store. I was probably 18 and loved his work and took a liking to Wesley. I made numerous trips to Philadelphia by bus and train from my home in south jersey and decided to buy two of his silver rings , one for my girlfriend and for myself. I finally saved enough money and bought them. I married my girlfriend and unfortunately lost her but I still have my Wesley Emmons silver ring. I wonder if she still has hers? Wesley was a special person! Thanks Wesley

I miss you as much as ever Wes. I remember with a smile the time I was spending a month in Paris and I was strolling down a little side street. Suddenly I heard your voice calling me and there you were out for your daily run !!!

Wes is gone, but certainly not forgotten. Every time his name is mentioned fond memories of his smiling face and great personality are brought to mind. I cherish my friendship with him, Ellen, and Wes and Hoyt.

I had the greatest privilege to meet both Wes and his son Hoyt at the Harvey Hadden 6 day Races in the UK. A man who's heart and kindness surpassed all others and my thoughts go out to all his family

Love was always the atmosphere in the house on S. 16th Street and full of mystery as collections of different things were toolsf the magician Wesley Emmons. and his beautiful fairy Ellen. It's will never ever live that special place in my heart which I design by them. Ellen and Wesley are our American Heritage of best Loving and Beloved people. Forever remembered.

thanks for being there for me over the years, dad, watching me grow, patiently watching me run, massaging my calves at night when they would cramp, letting me find my own path, and for teaching me how to "THIMP" (think).

Dear Ellen and Boys, It has been a great pleasure for me to have known Wes and his family for so many years. Wes was always so pleasant and fun to be with. Rita and I especially enjoyed the Christmas Eve gatherings each year.

While growing up, visiting my grandparents house was like entering a fairytale. We were encouraged to use our imagination, & use resources around the house for entertainment. My grandfather always smiled & looked on. Thank you for your encouragement
