I posted a memory yesterday and realized that I got the date wrong. I first met Mr. Wells July 19, 2018. He will forever hold a special place in my heart.

It saddens me to see that Mr. Wells has passed away. I first met him July 18, 2019, while working for Butler County Veterans Service Commission. I was having an awful day when he came in to tell us that he wasn't well, didn't have much time left and wanted to know if there was anything he needed to do to get his affairs in order. We talked for a while and I enrolled him into our transportation program so we could get him to all of his appointments. He told me many stories about his service and all about his beautiful wife, especially how he missed dancing with her. I went out to the lobby, he sang his favorite song and we danced. I had such a lovely time and I still have the pictures from that day. We hugged before he left and I spoke to him at least once a week, sometimes two or three times a day, up until he passed. He was very sweet and I will never forget him or how he brightened my day.
