Thank you for your final and lasting gift to me, Tony and Tim. Your courage to make Hospice your choice will forever leave a lasting imprint on our hearts. As your friend Bob said, to you, during his visit while in hospice: "Leave it to you to have your wake before you die!!!" You were celebrating your life with family and friends all day long Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We continue to Love you and will miss you. We always hear "your MEMORIES will always keep you close to a loved one who has passed.". Oh Boy we have MEMORIES!!
