I went to the Missouri Veterans Home for the return of the St. James workshop. Richard, 58, suffers from Emphysema, heart problems and Diabetes. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1969-1971, but never went to Vietnam. The average age of residents at the Veterans Home is 80, so, because of his relatively younger age, he is somewhat isolated. Richard has found life and entertainment through his humor. He can always be found telling a joke or pulling a random prop out of his wheelchair. “Some don’t like my humor at first," Richard said. "Then they see how boring it is here.”

I liked the last one a lot! I think you used space a lot better:).
