Dearest Elizabeth, I met you and your dad at the Western retiree luncheons at the Proud Bird. I was there with my dad (Cpt) Jimmy Dunn. The guys had so much fun together and loved their careers. It was so special for you and I to enjoy time with our dads as well as for my dad and I to get to spend time with you and your dad.

We are very lucky to have had such wonderful dads...dads that were larger than life. My dad has been gone since 2010, and I still miss him everyday. I know this is a difficult time for you, your brother and family. I am sending all of you my love, friendship, and my condolences. Michelle Dunn, retired Western and Delta flight attendant (1977-2005)

John, Gary, Kay and myself (and of course my Dad JJ), were so blessed to have known Wes. Even though we only had the honor of a couple of years you and he always made us feel a part of the Scotty's breakfast gang.

Our hearts are broken with the loss of the remarkable man and so blessed at the same time. With his gentle smile and smiling eyes shows a man that had lived a great life.

Liz, you showed him how to be loved and cared for and there are now words that can express how special you were to him.

We will carry Wes in our hearts forever.

God bless,

Love you love HIM

When we first met Wes, it was an instant friendship. We were interviewing him for a documentary on the 8th airforce during WWII. We fell in love with his wit, sense of humor & his overall charm. We feel very privileged to have heard a few of his many adventures. It was so touching to see the strong bond & loving relationship between Wes & Liz. We will truly miss him. We love you...ACT5C

Captain Wes Stone was one of the top notch pilots to fly with that came out of WW11 , what a pleasure it was to fly with him. Being hire in 1962 I got to fly with Wes on the DC-6B and the L-188 Electra, also the Boeing 720B. Wes was always good natured and treated us new guys with respect always there to help.
To the family of Captain Wes Stone as you probably know is the fact he was very well liked at Western Airlines.
Best Regards, Richard Calarco
