Wesley's Stupendous, Spectacular, Amazing, Wild Ride to Heaven (Hardcover)
Wesley's Stupendous, Spectacular, Amazing, Wild Ride to Heaven is a book written as a tribute to Wesley James Cockerill. Wesley was born with Noonan Syndrome, a genetic disorder that prevents normal development in various parts of the body. While Wesley had some other developmental issues, his heart was most effected by the Noonan Syndrome. During his nineteen months here on this earth Wesley was one of the happiest little boys you would ever meet. He loved playing and being with his brothers and cousins. Every Wednesday the cousins gathered at Grammy Mick and Pa's house and had Cousins Club. It was one of Wesley's favorite days playing with his brothers and his cousins. Wesley passed away on June 9, 2020.
The original purpose in writing this book was inspired by watching Wesley's Brothers, Will and Wyatt, going through a scrap book of pictures with captions, of Wesley, that his parents had made. Will said they made it so, "we would not forget Wesley". Initially the thought was that this book would be for family and friends to have a copy as a memory of Wesley and to give the brothers and cousins an idea of what Wesley may be experiencing in Heaven.
Many children and adults fear the unknown. This includes Heaven. The hope is that this little story will be read by children and adults alike and give them a positive view of Heaven. And reassure the reader that Heaven is a place full of love, joy, and fun and that God is a God of love. (1 John 4:16)
While born in sorrow this book strives to transform the loss of Wesley into the joyous truth that God wants everyone to experience salvation through His son and enjoy eternity in that place, we call Heaven. (Psalm 30:11)
Future titles may include Wesley Meets King David, Wesley Meets Daniel, Wesley Meets Paul, Wesley Meets Jesus' Family and Wesley Meets Jesus' Cousins Club.
