My deepest sympathy during this difficult time of the loss of your father. He was such an amazing man, full of stories, jokes and a smile that could light up the darkest of rooms. It was truly and honor to care for him during his time at Harrison House. His daily trivia question, his laugh, and his sarcasm will be missed so very much. I am so very lucky to have known him and grew to love him.
