Ivan was a good man he always made me feel welcome

I will always remember Ivan's unique way of showing his strength. to many it was considered resisting but to me he was just letting us know what he wanted. Yes Ivan could be gruff but underneath there was a very soft side that very few saw, I had the pleasure of experiencing that in Ivan. If you took the time to know him you would find it. It was a pleasure caring for you. RIP
