Orlando was a "special" man who brought happiness to a lot of people. When he attended Valley Care Adult Day Services he always had a smile and encouraged others. He will be greatly missed. His family is to be commended for their loving, caring ways with him. It was very evident that he was loved. Gail Raab, RN
