I had the pleasure of taking care of Mr Mcvay. When I went to work I was able to put a smile on his face. One of the things I enjoyed the most was even we would dance. When he was no longer able to dance with me he would say just dance for me. And I would. Missing him so much. Will continue to pray for each of you. And thank you so much for bring him into my life. Missing that smile. Love Yvette his CNA
