Not sure what to say?

I only got to know Dr. West a few months ago after meeting him and his wife. Dr. West offered to help me on my dissertation, he will be missed, our deepest sympathies. Darryl and Grace

I had the unique pleasure of serving as Dr. West's graduate assistant more than 20 years ago. Through the years he has been by advisor, mentor and, most importantly, friend. We stayed in touch over the years and I knew of his heath struggles. I am deeply saddened, but I am equally grateful for having known him. He was like a second father to me and I will miss him always. God Bless you, Dr. West. I love you very much.

My deepest sympathies and prayers to the West family.
