A special thank you to Jill who listened to Dale's health concerns daily and helped calm his fears. She was instrumental in helping us provide compassionate care in his final days.

When the lights went out in Papa's Space;
He was meant for Hospice Care and Comfort Place.
He tried his best. He was put to the test.
Now it was time for him to rest.
We Will Miss You PAPA...
