I live with, and share a home , life, children, grandchildren, pets, etc with this man. He is a wonderful, caring, veterinarian. And on top of that, he can do any project that needs to be done, and do it meticulously! He is a framer, an electrician, a roofer, a Gardner, a cement finisher, a leather worker, horse hair braided, horse trainer, Sunday dish doer, (and any other day when needed.) babysitter. He is always in high demand, because he is so talented, and happily willing to help me or any one of his children, or grandchildren! ( this is really cheesy, but true ) I love you Dr. Latimer!
