    Dear Eva and Dennis,
    Though we have never met I had the pleasure of meeting your dad when he befriended my 97 year old mother shortly after he moved in the Springs. She had only been there a couple of weeks and was still feeling her way into this new life in assisted living. His warm caring Christian way gave her much joy! They shared meals snd talks on the porch encouraging one another in their faith journey at this stage of their full lives. May you find comfort knowing his winsome ways we’re just what so many there needed and loved.
