Mr. Tanner you were one of a kind. I always enjoyed your words of wisdom when I went to go visit my grandmother. You always shook my hand the right way and with dignity. You will be truly missed at the nursing home. You are no longer suffering from that awful place. I will see you one day. Until then always shine in the sky and till we met again one day. With love always Nathan.
