If I had to use only one word to describe my impression of Mr. Ray West, I would have to say "kindness". Even though his life exhibited so much more, I believe genuine kindness was rooted deep into his heart and character. I'm so thankful I got to be around to witness, even at a distance, his well lived life. I know his "dash" represents so much; it's good to know he is safely home. May our LORD JESUS comfort you all.
