Keith, Caroline and I are very sorry to hear this sad news. I know you were close with your Father and worked along with him. Here’s hoping you can take some comfort in knowing that others share your grief. I hope to be down your way in April. Take care and warmest regards to Rhonda and all your family.

Dear Keith, Brian, Lynette & Family;
My heart is saddened at the loss of this sweet man. Aubrey was kind, caring and a good friend. He always wanted to go back home and fix up the little place for himself…. it’s what I think kept him going many days. He had many friends at the Villa and was well liked among residents and staff.
Personally I loved spending time with him and we shared many laughs. I know how good you guys were to him and how much he loved you all. He use to get angry and a little stubborn at times but that was fueled by how restricted his life had become in a long term care unit… but he made the best of it. I hope I will meet up with you people again … as we are unable to attend his service ( Aubrey was a religious man). My heart is broken as I would truly love to be there. Know that I admired, adored and deeply respected your Father. He was a true gentleman. God Bless you all and thank you for sharing him with us. Each one of you were very good to your Dad.. remember that… you have no regrets as you did everything you possibly could for him. Rest In Eternal Peace Aubrey
