In this year of shocks, seeing the news of Dr. West's death sent my stomach sinking. Each year 100 amazing young people start their journey through medical school in our classrooms at Meharry. There are a few truly exceptional students who leave an indelible mark on you. Henry West was one of those. I can still see him in his favorite seat in my embryo lectures. He was an excellent student, questioning and curious with a rapid grasp of the material and a heart that always put the...

It was an honor and privilege to call Henry Earl West my first cousin. He eventually felt more like a brother as we shared many inside jokes and stories. He mastered the art of resilience by not allowing any obstacle to prevent him from being successful. God bless my entire family in dealing with this loss. May his spirit change this world into a better place.

Earl was my biological cousin but we were always brothers. he came to live with my family our last two years of high school and we went from a family of 4 to 5 instantly. From all of our activities at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church, Sports, the Mall, Parties, etc. , if you saw one of us the other was usually not far away. I can remember us watching The Cosby Show but I had no idea that he planned on becoming a doctor but he knew it all the time. He was always goal oriented and knew exactly ...

Dr.West was an amazing doctor he delivered my first child he cared about all his patients he answered all of my questions and concerns my payers go out to his wife and son.

I met Dr. West when he was a new resident at Meharry and I worked in Ob/Gyn. I watched as he transitioned into an awesome physician. He always met me with a smile. I am thankful for the opportunity to have met him. My prayers and condolences are with his family during what we know is a very difficult time.

Dr. Henry West was very kind, compassionate man. He took very good care of me, although he said "Your complicated", but he made me well again. I'm forever grateful to have had him as my doctor. Touched many lives. Remembered Always

What can i say about this man, from the moment i found out i was pregnant, through a miscarriage, my 2nd pregnancy, a looonngggg 9 months and 18 hrs of labor he stuck by my side. We fussed, we fought and we argued, mainly because i was hardheaded. He was willing to be at my beck and call anytime of day or night. He made sure not only I was healthy but that my daughter was as well. He made my delivery experience the best ever and my aftercare as well. Thank you Dr.West for everything you did...

I am super thankful to have met you! While Working as your nurse, you managed to teach me so much and we had an incredible bond. You made sure I was okay everyday during my pregnancy as I continued to work with you and after you always checked on Addi! You were an amazing man and I will never forget you! Rest In Peace Dr. West! Addi and I love you!
