We would like to thank The Haven at Sky Mountain, in Hurricane, for their loving care over the last couple of years. Our dad made many friends there. As his health declined these past few months, we are grateful to the staff for taking such good care of him. We’d also like to thank Utah Home Hospice and their staff, especially Charlene, Johanna, Crystal, Ken, and Tanya, for being with dad in these last weeks. We will always remember all of your kindness and love for our dad.
