Fixing things was the way he showed love to us. When Dad got dementia, we had to take his tools away for safety reasons. He was never the same after that. One day the Maintenance Coordinator asked Dad to help change light bulbs and filters around the Branch. I called to speak with Dad and he said he was busy fixing things and we'd have to talk later.
