Hello Mr. Martinez..I would say, then he says...I walked outside, I did my arm exercises, I'm already started...what about you! Just one memory I shared with him. He always made me laugh, wished me safe travels and said...ok, see you next time! I will always cherish the time I spent with this family, his beautiful wife and son . They were very welcoming and supportive to the rehab plan. I thoroughly enjoyed the time I was blessed with. God bless you, keep you and carry your family as you watch in spirit. Love always, Yaneh/occupational therapist to Mr. Martinez
