I am sorry for your loss, Rick. Mr Lawson is one of my favorite patient. We have good times when he comes for a visit. I appreciated you Rick for taking care of your dad, not so many sons do this to their parents. I was touched with your loving care for him. Thank you for the time you spent with him especially during the last hours of his life.

It is a coincidence that I lose my mom this weekend. I hope Mr Lawson will meet my mom in heaven.

Take care Rick.
