Wiithout Dad, there will be a major void in all our lives that can never, ever be filled. He will remain in our hearts forever and ever. We face our loss with solace knowing that he is in a better place with Mom and his parents, and one day we will all meet again. Until then…we’ll miss you, Dad. You were the best!
Many thanks to all the doctors, nurses, aids, social workers, etc., we have encountered through these past three months. Thanks to the nurses on the third and fourth floors at the Merrimack Valley Hospital. They all went beyond the call of duty. And thanks so very much to the nurses, aids, case workers, etc., at the Merrimack Valley Hospice House in Haverhill, for making Dad so very comfortable in his last week in life. They were beyond supreme and are truly “angels”. We will never forget how wonderful you comforted Dad in his last days. He looked so comfortable. It was an amazing experience and a truly amazing place to bring a loved one. Many thanks, also, to very special friends, Dad’s and ours, the priests from St. Michael’s and all who have supported us through his illness. You know who you are, and you won’t ever be forgotten.
