We were blessed the day they moved my daddy into the room with Mr Charles. We had many talks and laughs. He could make daddy behave, and always told me what he had been into that day. Libby, you have no idea how much it meant having you with him every day. He will be missed. Thanks for letting us get to know him. We love you. Barbara
