Continuing to send prayers up for the family!
Missing Dewey dearly. Days have not been the same! Coming to work and speaking to Dewey even if that meant he was getting ready to mumble “Ain’t nothing good about it” or “ Leave me alone” when he didn’t feel like being bothered! The time spent here with Dewey has been great! It still seems so unreal! I’m not going to go into all them memories that the staff and I share here at Seven Lakes Al/MC with Mr. Kimbrew! Family continue to keep your heads up and know you all are still on our minds! 😘
