    Sarah, I never introduced myself to the two of you when you passed by the gift shop at Baptist for his therapy. I just said yesterday that I had not seen the two of you and I wondered what had happened. Both of you were so precious. He had such an upbeat spirit, as did you and you were his angel and a blessing to him. Ya’ll were so cute together. My thoughts and prayers are for you healing. Please hang on to all the times you laughed together and had fun. Those times will get you through the tough times!!
