    My deepest condolences goes out to the Wesley family. But i leave you with this the comfort of God’s word.This is King David’s response to his servants after his son died 2 Samuel 12:22
    “David answered, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept, for I said, ‘Who knows? The LORD may be gracious to me and let him live.’ 23But now that he is dead, why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him, but he will not return to me” . I knew my brother knew the Lord i had many conversations with him and because of that we will see you again.Amen
