Here's to JRs family, I am an escort at the Fort Wayne VA Hospital. They call me "Big Mike" and I'm the guy that wears the Bib Overalls, this is where I got to know JR . He was one of my regular patients that I would look forward to seeing. It's sad to see his passing but now there is no more suffering, and he is at peace . Hope you all get on alright, and may GOD bless you and comfort you. Sincerely Michael Ely
