    I just want to say sorry for your family’s loss & I will be praying for you all. I am blessed to say that I took care of Bob in the nursing him. He was definitely one that I will never forget. He was definitely one of my favorites! Bob and I have had several memories together. Whenever he would get up in the mornings, we would sing together. There was one day he wanted to dance so we danced to Elvis Presley and I twirled him in his wheelchair. I loved seeing the laugh & smile on his face. Whenever I would have a rough day, he was always there for hugs & good talks over his coffee in the morning! Heaven received a very special person. I loved this man and always will. He will always be in my heart. Keeping you all in my prayers! Take care!
