    My heart goes out to the Nable family. I will always remember my time with your family and how you took me in as one of your own, and always bent over backwards! They always made sure I was comfortable (and fed) even when I wasn’t hungry…”Debbie, come and eat (me: no thank you)…COME AND EAT!” Loved him!! Please let me know if we can be of any help. Love you all!
