God was preparing for your arrival, little did we know how soon that would be. What an honor and blessing to care for you on Friday. You made me laugh, and today you made me cry when I heard the sad news of your departure to Heaven. Breathe easy, Mister Washburn, breathe easy. What an honor that God placed me with you on Friday. I hope that my son greeted you at the gate! Hugs to your wife!
