A special thanks to all his friends and family who stayed faithful with their prayers, visits and calls throughout his time of illness. He really missed going to church and being with his church family. Extra thanks to Roxanne Bond who always manages to be everywhere she’s needed all the time, to Charles Dalton who spent many hours sitting with him even as he slept and never wanting Linda to be alone, to Amy Smith and family and MediHome Hospice who sent wonderful nurses, caregivers who kept him cheerful till the very end, Alicia, Makenzie, Ginger, Missy, and Debbie.
