    We are very sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed working for Mr Westover. When he would come to the gas station we talked about the races and about my kids. He had seen them a few times at the gas station. He always talked about how great and well behaved the kids were in the school bus.
    He will be missed.
    May his soul and Mrs Westover soul Rest In Peace.Amen
