We extend our greatest appreciation to Esmeralda and Denee at Guardian Angels Group Home, Dina his Nurse Practitioner and all his caretakers at Nurses on Wheels for their kind and loving care for our loved one while he was under their care. They showed extraordinary attention and love that will not be forgotten.
He will be remembered as a loving, kind, generous and devoted husband, father, grandfather, son and brother. His beautiful smile, that he was always willing to share, will be greatly missed.
