I was a regular at the Cleeves’ household growing up. As a good friend of Lisa’s, I had the privilege of knowing Grandma and Grandpa West. They always had a kind hug and words to say along with the smile. I’m sorry for the family’s loss as the loss is great, she was a wonderful lady. However, I’m so thankful that Grandma is finally reunited with her loving husband tonight. Very bittersweet!
