Thank you so much for the priviledge of caring for your dad. It was so fun to hear the staff from both Providence Hospice and Wesley Woods talk about him when he was feeling better: everyone truly loved Joe. There will be a hole in everyone's heart each time we go by his room. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this sad time. It was an honor to have met all of you and to watch over Joe.
