    I will miss West so much. I met him when I was as 13 or 14 years old. I went to local radio station WSAI teen dances. He was so sweet . And so talented. We kept in touch all these years. My deepest sympathy to his daughter, the rest of his family and his many friends. He was wonderful to me when my brother passed in Dec. 2021.
