    I have been so blessed by him, how he came to Vero Beach and did so much excellent volunteer help on our house. A much appreciated conversion of our laundry room into a second bathroom (a bathroom laundry combination) and the removal of our fireplace and replacement with a regular door and screen door, and extra source of light, entrance, and air flow. Just a sample of his goodness. What skills and willingness. He will be missed.
