I had the pleasure of taking care of Mr. VandenBosch when he first moved into Riley's Grove. He instantly reminded me of my Grandpa and won me over with his smile and his perfectly ironed shirts! He would always forget to bring his walker with him, so instead he would offer me his arm like a true gentleman, and down the hall we would walk. Such a sweet man, he brought me many smiles and we had lots of laughs together during my shifts. My condolences to your family during this difficult timebut I pray that you may all find peace in his change of address where he is reunited with his wife and living his best life!
