I don't ever remember seeing L.C. when he wasn't smiling like he was up to something. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. My deepest sympathy to all the family.

I realize that I have only known Mr. L.C. for just a short while, but I will always remember his friendly and sometimes mischievious smile, and his Frank Sinatra blue eyes. Thanks for the opportunity for allowing us to take care of him here at the nursing home and to be a part of our lives. God bless and keep you all. Love, Bridget

Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss of L.C. He brought a smile to our face every day he was here. Thank you for allowing us to take care of him. We were just talking today about seeing him on the front porch of his house on South Main throwing up his hand at every car that went by. He will surely be missed here at Abbeville Nursing Home. We love you all. Alison Latham, RN Admission Coordinator Abbeville Nursing Home Claudia Whiten, RN MDS Coordinator Derhonda Henderson, RN ADON Abbeville Nursing Home.
