    Lefty was an amazing and kind man and loved by many at the Care Center. I got to know Lefty when he visited his wife and later when he started Volunteering for the the veteran’s weekly meetings at the center. What a good an generous man, I was so lucky to know him and Joyce.

    My sincere condolences. Thor (I always called him that) was so friendly. He often brought Joyce down and we’d just sit around and gab and he always stopped by to say hi. I will miss him, he was a great guy.
