I am so heartbroken to find this out. I’ve cleaned for him for several years now and he became like a family member to me. Such a sweet man, I always enjoyed the chats we had while I was there. Before I would leave he would ALWAYS tell me how much he appreciated me and I did him as well. I will cherish our friendship forever. I will miss him dearly. Blessings and prayers to his family in this heartbreaking time.
