After 16 days in Hospice, my Dad passed away yesterday, peacefully and in no pain. The road was a long one, with many turns. Hospice was wonderful as well as the nursing home staff. The above picture is the way I will remember Dad at the end. That picture was on his 92nd birthday in his new NIU red sweatshirt with his beloved McDonald's coffee.
RIP in Dad, and we all love you and miss you, but you had a wonderful life! Because he was a WII veteran, it is fitting that his memorial service will be Memorial Day weekend!
