    Based on the frequent visits from so many of his caring family, it was heartwarmingly clear that he was loved; and that he was a great guy people wanted to be with.
    It was admirable to see a family care so much.
    (It was also a pleasure chatting with you, Rosa and Andy).
    Take care and hope you will always cherish every moment you had with him.
    Warmest regards
    Darryl (the guy who visited his mother across the hall from your Dad).
