Casimir was such a gentleman and sweet man. He would always be so happy when we visited and excited to have company. He was always so appreciative and thankful when we took him to lunch or gave him a gift. It was such a honor to acknowledge him because he would thank you numerous times for visiting. I know on Thursday he understood when he nodded, I told him,Bill and I were going to the VA and see about getting him home. He loved his little apartment at Ever Ridge and considered the VA staff his family and friends. I know Casimir is resting with the angels in heaven.I would frequently see where he had been reading and studying the bible. Rest in peace Casimir,you are home.I loved you like a uncle.
