I Remember when the Veterans home first opened me and my hubby hosted a game night with Team RWB and of course Homer and his wife played dominos it was a small group as they were still trying to get all the approvals to have more people. They are such a sweet couple and we will truly miss him. I’m so glad that he knows the Lord and that we will see him again in Heaven!!!
