Dear Barbara and family,
I was so shocked to see that Rex passed away while I was on vacation. I am so sad for you all and will be praying hard that our Lord will wrap his loving arms around you all at this time and give you the comfort and peace you need.
Rex was one of a kind and I was so honored to take care of such a gentleman who loved to pick and have a good time. I sorely will miss our wonderful conversations and discussions about our Lord.
I know Rex is celebrating in heaven and smiling so hugely.
My love and prayers I send to you all.
Sabrina McKeithan RN CHPN Mountain Valley Hospice.
