Melissa, Melinda, and Melanie - my condolences to each of you. It was a honor to get to know your dad some thirty years ago as you were all finding your way as young adults. It was clear that he loved his daughters and Lonnie more than anything. It was evident to all that he was so proud of each of you and I am sure he was up until his last breath. Some say there is no greater love than between a father and a daughter, how lucky he was to have the three of you and Andrea. My prayers for each of you as you mourn, heal, and grow. How blessed you all were to share such love...Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

Dear West and Taviano families, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Gary and I went to school together, graduating in 1964 from Lima Senior High. My maiden name is Welch, so Gary and I often sat next to each other in class. Praying for strength and comfort at this sad time.Sincerely, Cheryl (Welch) Martin
