Andrea and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know he loved my mom and did what he could, in his only way he knew how, to take care of her. I appreciated that. I truly hate he had to spend these last years alone. I know he is in a better place. May you find strength in that. He was so proud of you and his grandchildren. My prayers are with you and your family in this time. Tammy Sides Nelson
