Mr. C.'s in pretty bad shape for only being 63 years old.
He has congestive heart failure and prostate cancer.
He never married and has no children.
He and his older sister, Mrs. N., were never particularly close.
Her husband was career Navy and they moved around a lot.
They raised three children and then became certified foster home parents.
When his health failed, Mr C. had no where to turn.
His sister stepped to the plate.
She and her husband finished a room over their garage and made a nice apartment for him over 4 years ago.
They're close now.
