My thoughts and prayers are with family and friends . I didn't have the honor of taking care of him, but the first time I met him he acted like he had known me for ever he took my hand and patted it while we talked. A very sweet man and the 2 nd time he and I talked he wanted me to met his amazing wife that he adored. He'll will be truly missed exspecially from my daughter Courtney that had grown very fond of him and Kathy..Again many thoughts and prayers.
