Debby Huffman Mersiel wrote: Tom Orth was my uncle. He was one of a kind! For years he would give care to a gentleman who was bedfast. His mother could not lift him so Tom would get him in and out of bed, and of course, shave him and gave him haircuts. I think he made more than one trip a day to that home.

Tamara Meese wrote: @ Debby - that is precious of your uncle. A selfless act of compassion.
