Mary and Nick West (Nick passed away just nine months earlier) along with the whole Griffith and West family are an irresistible force. A combination of devotion, honor, humor and respect all rolled up into laughter, memories, history and so much love. Now their son, Ryan, and his wife Brandi run the Palacios Beacon, and the legacy they built together.

I was one of many people who worked for the Beacon in Palacios. The best part of the day was just after 4 p.m. when Mary would arrive after teaching second graders at school. (My youngest being one of many she taught and loved dearly.) Her stories were endless. She could turn a stop at the gas station into a story funnier than any sitcom episode. She was not just a grandmother, her grandchildren and many friends called her Princess. She earned that title. Once you met her, you belonged to her, and to that family. That's just how they rolled.
