    I would like to thank Lil Man for the unselfish love that he gave to our uncle, Papa when he was bedridden from Parkinson’s disease. Lil Man dedicated two years of his life to become his caregiver. Without his help, Papa would have been put in a nursing home. Instead, he was able to live out the rest of his life at home with his family until he passed away in a hospital. I know that there is a gold star in his crown for the love and care that he provided for Papa and Nana. I will miss him and I am forever grateful to him for what he did for my family. What he freely and unselfishly gave to so many others…time, knowledge, laughter and love.
