Mike & Jerry-
Uncle Sully is resting in peace and I hope that you are as well...
I am a caregiver at Cumberland
Crossing's Nursing home. Sully was one of my favorite residents, and I will miss him very much. He told us stories of
his life, made me laugh. I would walk in the room, and say," hi honey, he would answer, Hi sweetie. He would tell me
I talked too much and then laugh, I would give him a hug or kiss on the forehead, and he would say, thank you. He will be
remembered by many who took care of him. We loved him dearly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
I lived across the street from you
on Brandy Lane - I was sorry to read of your fathers passing - and to see that your mom and sister are also gone.
I pray God is with the entire family and pray for peace.
Goodbye father. I miss you so much. You were my mentor, friend and my strength. Rest in peace..........Jerry
