So sorry for your loss. I spent many, many years working with Mr West in Whitemarsh Beverage and I considered him to be a true friend. We enjoyed many candid conversations about our industry, our city and local and national politics. Mr West was a hard working true gentleman with a deep love for his business and his family and will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your family
