Alzheimer's is an awful disease, we lost our mom twice, first her memory, then a hand to hold, a body to hug. Fond du Lac has a treasure called the Hospice Home of Hope. The entire staff, volunteers are truly gifts, this is a calling from God to them, not just a job.
Private family services will be held at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, with Rev. Adam Zimpelmann. Burial will be in Rogersville Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Hospice Home of Hope. God bless our new family at Hospice.
