    I was the nurse who worked at his cardiology office in Southport. He was very kind and friendly. I told him my mother's maiden name was Barker. He told me of the 3 brothers that settled in different areas. He even brought me a photo of his parents. Moses, he was very proud of you. So sorry for your loss.
