Mom, I am sorry for your loss. I love you. Dad isn’t in pain anymore. I am sure he is at peace and smiling down on you and us. I love you Dad.

It has been an honor to be Bill’s nurse over the past year. I will miss visiting the home and seeing his smiling face when I came through the door. I will miss him telling me to fix his socks so they are just so :) It has been a pleasure getting to know Bill and Marilyn, they made me feel like part of the family. May he Rest In Peace.
