    Steven or “Teevie” as i named him was my pt at sunrise assisted liveing ,for the last 2yrs..our bond was like we had been friends for many of yrs.we played games on “alexa”.. We sang..when i danced he would also do his own moves in bed..even tho he was unable to walk.Oh how we would laugh at yester yrs,but we also cried about our love ones we had lost.He was good at advice..but better at listening.what he loved most..was his family..nothing more important to him knowing tey were allways there even tho covid made it impossible to physically be there..he would cry to me how appreciated he was for each n every one of them as he knew his health was getting worst.I watch him from the happy gentle giant and noticed slowly i was looseig him n i never would imagine he would be gone..i miss him…his smile..his laughter..his demeinor.
