    I am so sorry about your loss. I had the joy of transporting Charles to and from Elderhause for many months. He will always hold a special spot in my heart as we were really close. Charles was always happy and loved to joke around with my other riders, even when he wasn't feeling his best. Charles, I know you are in a better place now, but you will truly be missed by myself and everyone that you touched in your special way.

    Mr. Dove was one of my patients at Elderhaus. He was such a sweet man and he will be missed greatly. He had the best sense of humor and cared about every single person in this facility. His good heart and his smile will never be forgotten.

    Charlie was a sweet man, he lived across the street from us on Sardou Road and I would love to see him riding his bike with his dog in the basket. He would stop and talk for a while. He will be missed dearly and never forgotten.
