Oct 23 2011 Tribute to Dad

On October 23, 2011, Dad passed away peacefully at home.  We were very fortunate to have had 10 pain free weeks with this wonderful man, doing everything he wanted in that time.  We went to orchards, rides, restaurants, picnics, and mostly had a lot of porch sitting time!

We could not have done this without the help of Hospice,who I am convinced are Angels on earth.  They made it possible for me to be able to keep Dad pain free and comfortable even at the end.

Dad - miss and love you every day - and Mom, you too!  Here are some pics of my wonderful parents.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. It sounds like your Dad led a full and happy life, and that he and those he loved had an opportunity to say everything they needed to say to bring closure to all. I hope your happy memories, together, sustain you through this difficult time.

  2. We feel privileged to have met your Dad. He was a joy.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. You have been very blessed to be able to spend this time with your dad!


  4. So glad that you were able to be there with your dad (and mom too) when they both needed and wanted you there. Hugs to you both.

  5. My thoughts and sympathies are with you at this time, Peggy. How wonderful that you had this quality time with your Dad. And I sure do agree about Hospice. Wonderful people. Hugs to you and David...Joan Weise
