Be warmed by memories

To the editor,

It saddened me to hear about the passing of Wes Boie.

When I moved to Anna in 1981, I was having difficulty securing finances for a piece of property.

Thanks to Wes and his affiliation with the First National Bank of Jonesboro, I purchased the property and became a resident of Anna, Illinois.

Over the years, I would greet Wes or would stop by his office for a friendly chat.

He was always soft spoken, very intelligent and very observant. He had a sense of humor as well.

I also enjoyed knowing his children while they attended Anna-Jonesboro Community High School.

Am I surprised that Wes Boie wanted to make his exit in an unassuming manner? Not at all! His own words say it best!

However. Let me just say, "Wes, you certainly left one heck of a big footprint in Union County."

To Kay and the kids, I offer my sympathy. "Don't mourn the loss of the flame, rather be warmed by the memories!"

Signed, Michael Scott, Simpson
