Mr. Dunham was a fine gentleman. I met him in his last days, and enjoyed the time we spent together. He was wise, humorous, witty, and knowledgable. I most appreciate his love for the Lord, and the importance he placed on the spiritual well being. Each day I cared for him,for weeks... he would ask me "how are you?" even on the very day before his passing, he somehow had enough strength to whisper, "how are you?" and "God is good." Yes, this faithful man spoke those words on Sunday, the day before he met Jesus! That afternoon, he requested his daughter pray, and she did; and allowed me to be a part of that beautiful, sacred moment at her father's bedside .... where the Lord's Prayer was said in the most beautiful way I have ever witnessed. This wonderful man helped me get a glimpse into heaven!!! I truly loved him, and Candy. I will miss them both, and am praying for you Candy.... With sincere love and sympathy, Kelly Akin, RN Alive Hospice
