  1. We recently meet Mr. Ferguson at the VA. He was sharing a room with my father in-law. On our first visit he was not a very happy guy but made us laugh often when complaining about the nurses waking him up to draw blood or take vitals. As the days went on he was feeling better and the grumpiness turned to smiles when we stopped by for a visit with my father in-law. We always made it a point to chat with him for a few minutes while we were there. We were happy to see him discharged a few weeks ago but saddened when his name appeared back up on the 7th floor monitor. My wife and I stopped in for a quick hello and again we were greeted with a smile. Although we did not know him well you could tell there was something special about him. Our condolences to your family!
