Condolence & Memory Journal

So very sorry for the loss of your dad, Laura. I didn't know him well, but he seemed like a very sweet man when he came for the holidays.

Laura .. you have my most sincere condolences. I loved Don. He was so smart yet so witty. He will be missed. I'm sure it was difficult witnessing the period of his life where he needed hospice care. It's never easy seeing a parent in that circumstance. You always want to remember them as the vibrant people they once were. But whatever, you said to him in those final days, please know that I'm sure he heard you and appreciated you being there, even if he couldn't respond. He is now at peace and with Greg and Joan.

Love, Dale
