    Patty was my sister-in-law, and she brought a great deal of happiness to my brother. She created a warm, beautiful and loving home for Lewis and their beloved pets. She was an extremely talented interior decorator, and their home was an oasis of comfortable beauty. Patty had a sharp wit and a wonderful sense of humor. She was fun to be with and will be very much missed. Rest in peace Patricia West. You gave much to the world.
