  2. I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the family of Mr. John Abshire. I was lucky enough to have the honor and pleasure of being Mr. John's night nurse at the War Veteran's Home. Although Mr. John was not a big talker, he would get up at night and come to see me. I'll always remember his big sweet tooth, and he always knew I had snacks for him. I will truly miss him. Sincerly, Julie Guidry LPN
