I work at the Nashville VA Hospital and it is there I had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Link. I work in his primary care clinic and have enjoyed his stories of his friends, family, faith and fishing for several years. He was a grand man. And so thoughtful. He asked about me while I was out with knee replacement surgery, gifting me with a wonderful book to read, and checking on me upon my return. Mr. Link will always be one of my fondest memories of my time at the VA. My prayers for his family and friends.
