The family would like to send a special Thank You to the Delta Walmart who found productive things for him to do and keep his dignity when he was unable to do his regular job due to this horrible disease. Also, a very very special Thank You to Hope West Hospice and his nurse Lilianna and his CNA Randy. Without them this disease process would have been more difficult.
There is not going to be a service. Please enjoy time and share stories about my Sweetie. He was much loved.
