Sad to hear and see the sad loss of the black man and yes BLACK LIVES MATTER. we are all in this together. It is now 38 years since 12 June 1982, I have mobility difficulties the older I get and the support from my wife, called Linda, welcomed and supportive. Mum Anita at 94 is doing great and elder brother Gary lost his wife a few years ago but has been a great grand father to 5. I always think of the excellent care attention and support of Grady. In the not too distant future my wife and I will visit Atlanta. Love you lots. Sim and Linda."
