"Saturday, my precious father passed from this life to life eternal. I consider it a privilege to have cared for him, these last 8 months, as he warred, mightily, to regain his health. The last week of his life, he made the decision to call in Hospice, relax, and let "nature take its course". I am happy to report he was surrounded by his family, who adored him, when he left this world."
