I enjoyed taking care of Harold at Sterling House. He was very polite, well dressed, and fun to be around. I will miss him.

Memories

I have so many memories of Grandpa Wick...too many to share. At different points in my life he's been a teacher, idol, friend, grandpa and more. He did things with gusto & I will miss him. He was always quick with a joke and sometimes even funny ones! We'll miss him here on earth, but will join him someday. I just pray he's not asking the angel at the "pearly gates"..."Do you want to see where the horse bit me!?!"
