    Mr Camilleri was easily one of our favorite patients! We loved him and loved caring for him. He gave us a reason to smile every time we were with him! My deepest sympathies to Mrs Camilleri and his family. It was a privilege to have known him.

    My deepest sympathy to the family. I worked with Steve for 22 years. He was a mentor, and friend, and my work brother.  I have many great memories of Steve, and I will miss him terribly. Paul Baker.
