I had the privilege of taking care of Mr. Sutphin at Melbourne Terrace, a few times. It was my pleasure and an honor. Each “one” teaches us something new and I thank you, sir, for the lesson received. Much love to all ❤️

Dad I’m glad to know you for the past 27 years. You were always a funny and light hearted kind man. You will be missed. I hope you are with your brothers and family in heaven. All my love Ruth

I was so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I was fortunate to see Jim nearly every day at Palm Cottages for the past 7 years, when I visited my Mom (Mina), who just passed away in March. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. God Bless.
