A special thank you to Wheatley Exum who has been his primary caregiver over the past 4 years. She was not only a caregiver, a friend, but part of the family.  We could not have made it all these years without you.
A special thanks to our cousin, Mrs. Elsie S. Brown for her support and contributions.

Lastly, the team of caregivers that watched over him these last 4 months were outstanding.  Without these women, he would not have been able to stay at home and be given the level of care he was given by this team.  Thanks to Katrina Smith, Pam McCord, Lynetta Fields, Denise Holder, Rhonda Sumlin and RaSheema Hartsfield.

One of his favorite expressions:  "Take all you want, but eat all you take."
