    When I was an employee at Cameron Nursing & Rehalilitation Center, you are the reason it was so hard to leave. You made my days better. You loved your black coffee and folding those place napkins. I enjoyed hearing you greet me each day with a 'hey babe'. Im so happy that I was able to get you that globe for Christmas! I know Heaven lit up when you went thru those gates and I know Mary was waiting to greet you with open arms! You will forever be loved and missed by so many! Prayers to your family and loved one, Joe!
