When we were younger, it seems like almost every weekend, the entire family would get together at Grandpa and Grandma West's house. All the cousins would get together and just play and play. With the West's being such a large family, there certainly were a lot of us. As the years went on, as we all grew older, we drifted apart, the family gatherings became fewer and fewer which was unfortunate. I didn't get to really know Lonnie as he became an adult, but I would hear about the things he accomplished and the good person he was. I regret not staying in touch with him and getting to know him. He is with his Dad now. May he R.I.P. and we will see each other again on the other side. My thoughts and prayers are with Aunt Sandy and the rest of the family.
