It was a joy to take care of Mr. Burleigh I was employed by his caregiver Evelyn Disterlhurst. He ❤️ to play with the balloons he hit up in the air and he was very strong and he smiled at you. My prayers are with his family and with his caregiver she love him very much and the staff that cared for Christopher that cared for him and they loved him. He was smiling whenever you cared for him. He will be missed and I will always think of Mr. Burleigh remember that sweet smile.
