"Ms. West was loved very much by me and my three girls.  We visited her every week at the rest home.  My girls would hug and love on her so much.  We prayed together and sang songs.  When we went to visit a couple of weeks ago, the girls ran straight to her room only to find out about her passing.  The girls were devastated.  We cried in front of her door.  My girls are Abigail 13, Julia 9, and Olivia 7 years old.  I had to remind them that we are never promised tomorrow.....They loved Ms. West so much."

"A very,very special person that I loved like a Mother. She gave guidance and  unconditional love to Megan, Allie and myself and was the best Nanny anyone in the world could have asked for.  God blessed us with you Nanny, and now I know you are rejoicing in Heaven, no more sorrow, pain or suffering. We will miss you Nanny, but we know you are in such a better place and we have so many great memories of the years that we had with you! . For those that never shared in that love, you really missed out on an amazing lady.   Love Megan, Allie and Tammy."
