My thoughts and prayers are with the family. He was a great man. He would always have a smile on his face and would always recognize us as employees of St. Lucas. He would always like to stay up later and give us grief but would like that of Bob. His eyes would light up when his wife came up and spent the morning with him. He will be missed.
