Larry West Weinstein stated that, despite all efforts, West’s ongoing treatment at the hospital, who was suddenly ill earlier this month, was inconclusive. “I am asking for all your prayers. Jenni is by his side in Florida, but it’s not looking good. Thanks, Jenni, he wouldn’t have made it this far without you. His heart gave out and he’s on a ventilator.
