    Mary, Jennifer and Laura. I am so sorry for your loss of your husband and Dad. I am glad I was able to visit before his passing. He loved you very much and your love for him will carry him to Heaven. He is no longer in pain and is surrounded by his family who crossed over before him but he will always love you to eternity and will be there waiting when it is your turn to cross over. Love. Marjorie

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Laura. You and your family are in my thoughts.

  3. Robin Pegues condolence:

    It was a complete honor taking care of Bob. He was the coolest. He told the best stories and would cheat at uno! Lol jk I’d let him win. He seemed to trust me and I was honored by that. He was a great crap talker and I loved it cause so am I lol
    I would say my best memory of giving him care was Mary. Low key she taught me how to be a better wife. She taught me patients and how to love my husband just a little bit more. God bless you and the family. I’m always here if you need me Mary
