    Many years ago, I befriended an elderly gentleman who lived in a nursing home near Dresden, Tennessee.

    Mr. Garner was in his mid-80s, with failing health but had a very sharp mind.

    Frequently, if I was in Dresden on business, I would go by the nursing home and take Mr. Garner with me as I did my business to give him a break form his bleak living conditions.
