When my dad was sent by helicopter ambulance to U of L hospital in January of 2015, he and my Aunt Janet were there and stayed with my sister and I in the Emergency Room. He helped ease our worry by telling us funny stories. One story in particular that I remember, and I don't know if it was true or not, but he said he called Janet to come pick him up. When she asked where he was, he told her he was on the corner of Walk and Do Not Walk. He told many great stories and jokes that night. He didn't have to come that night, but he did, and I'm glad. It meant a lot to me to have them both there.
