I had the Privilidge to take care Mr. Smith AKA as my buddy at Lynchburg Rehab. He was a Feisty man that didn't mind telling you how he feel. I would come in his room and when he saw my face he would say hey Buddy!!! and I would say hey buddy!!! When you give him a bath, you can smell him all the way down the hall.. He had the good stuff😀 He had such a big heart. I love seeing him smile. His face lights up like the sun when he do and if you got on his wrong side you and everyone on the hall would know it too. I'm truly going to miss my buddy so much. It was a blessing to have meet him and his lovely family especially his twin daughters Lisa and Teresa. You guys was there and did your best to make sure he was cared for daily. Hang in there you will see him again one day. Love you guys❤
