Sheila and Linda
I am so sorry to hear of your dads passing. I did not know about it I would have like to be there for his funeral. I tried calling you but was told it was the day of the funeral. I had grown so very fond of your dad and loved it when he smiled for me. First when he came to the home my dad and him and myself played games together. I had time to see him as a loving and wonderful person during the glimpse of times that he showed himself. My thoughts and prayers are with you both and the family. So glad I got to met you both God Bless

Sheila, and family
So sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

I was so saddened to hear of Frank’s passing. I had become very fond of him over the last year at Pleasant View Towers. He would light up every time I picked Chance up to see him. When he could he lift his hand to pet him, other days I’d lift his hand for him. He always smiled when he saw us coming.
Know he is missed
