I am so sorry for your loss Vickie and family. My grandmother loved when your Daddy would bring her meals on wheels to her house. He was very loving and kind to her and she never forgot it. My mom and I fed her breakfast and dinner but she looked forward to lunch time with the man with the white hair. She never remembered his name but the man with the white hair brightened up her day. Prayers for peace and comfort during this difficult time.
