So sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I had the privilege of knowing this wonderful man while caring for him as his nurse at Queens Manor. I also had gotten to know him well while he shared a room with my Grandfather. They were great friends and I’m sure Herman is at a loss as both gentlemen always had each other’s backs and best interests at heart. On behalf of all of our family members, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to each of you during this difficult time. May God bless you and comfort you.
