The past few months I have watched you provide around-the-clock care for your father in his time of need, always being there to do whatever was necessary to help him find a cause for his pain, then attempting to find a cure when he received the diagnosis, followed by keeping him as comfortable as possible during his last weeks when the treatments failed. As a parent myself, I can certainly appreciate what a wonderful son you were to your father.

Your father's presence you'll miss, his memory you'll treasure, loving him always, forgetting him never. Dearer still as the years depart, he'll live forever in your heart.

Wishing you peace to bring you comfort and courage to face the days ahead.

My deepest sympathy to you and your family,
