Condolence from Mona Mosher on February 12th, 2010 7:45 am

To all the families of Lawerence, I offer my sympathy and condolences, it was a pleasure to get to know him, at the nursing home, he always had great stories to tell us and to make us laugh!He will always be remembered for the way he would begin his conversations, before he asked for any assistance, ( which wasn’t often, because he never wanted to be a “bother”) , he would start by saying ” Honey, its like this”,and then go on to tell us what he wanted us to know!! A great man!! Mona Mosher LPN
