    With a heavy heart I send my condolences to my second family. Mrs. Joan and her family became my family when I started caring for her. I loved taking care of you Mrs. Joan and you will forever be missed. You may be gone physically but I know you’re here in spirit, I will see you again...... see you later alligator, (as you would say back to me every night) after while crocodile. I still say it in my head every night before I go to sleep. I love you and I will see you again some day. ?
