There was nothing Dad enjoyed more than having his family around him. His family meant the world to him and he meant the world to us. We, as family, are so thankful to have had a loving father like he was. We will miss him dearly, but we also visualize Dad experiencing renewed health and release from pain as he enters his home in heaven safe in the arms of Jesus. We express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. A. Bissonette and the many health care staff for the care that was given to our Dad. Special thanks to the friends and relatives for all the prayers and comforting support given to us during this difficult time.
