Our Daddy was so very blessed to have extended family and many lifelong friends who have remained faithful and loyal to him though the years and until the end. You all know who you are and we are eternally grateful. His Oceanfront family in Salterpath, NC has too held a special place in his heart. We appreciate you all "looking out" for Daddy as his health declined.
We wish to personally thank the staff of Transitions Hospice Care and the caregivers of Sunrise or Raleigh.
