When my father moved to Lakelands long term care, Wally knocked on his door greeting him with a hardy Hello John, I'm Wally and then proceeded to roll in with a psw behind him holding a bottle of red wine and 2 glasses, let's have a drink. The two men became friends instantly. He was a brother from another mother to my dad and instantly they connected. We wereI lucky to see him last week to thank him , give him a big hug and kiss ! One from me and one from my father!xoxo Our heartfelt condolences to the family! Big hugs to all. Marianne and Joe Moloney-Marianne and Joe Moloney
