He was just a charm! I work at the pharmacy at NHB and there was never a time in the last 11 + years that I have worked there that I didn't hope he was called to my window. He was so full of life and joy and completely gracious during our remodel.
This is a guy who when he recognized you he would give you a huge cheesey grin and could make you smile and cheese it up with him even on your worst days! When I saw this I was at work and I cried. I cried knowing he will never show up just when I thought my day had gone down hill and make me smile and laugh. He was such a blessing, and the world (at least mine) doesn't quite shine as brightly as it once did.
Sending healing light to his family and please know he will be thought of often and well.
