    You command those who work.......huh? Command them to do what? Check your spelling, dear. Command-an authoritative direction or instruction to do something-one of MANY definitions of command. How about commend? Commend-present as worthy of regard, kindness, or confidence. Yes, that has to be it! Try google sometime if you're not sure of your work. Maybe next time you won't look so foolish. And while you're at it. check your grammar, too. It is quite atrocious.

    Glad this man was found. Hey Water Oak Manor - need to keep a better eye on your residents. If this was my father you would get a major LOUD earful and he would be removed from your 'care'.
