I’m so sorry to hear of this loss. I got to know him well as he drove his dear wife to her weekly hair appointments to my hair salon after she could no longer drive. He was such a dear and caring husband to her and I greatly enjoyed our conversations. I have thought of him often after retiring and moving away. Praying for peace and comfort in your time of sorrow.
