    Rob, What a wonderful life your Dad had and how fortunate he was to have you giving him the care he needed the last few years.
    It seems like the two of you really had a good time together, something you will always be able to look back on and be proud of.
    I’ll be calling shortly… I know you miss him, how many of us would be very happy to have enjoyed such a life.

    Robert – I am so very saddened for the loss of your Dad, whom you love so dearly. I am happy that you were able to have such a close involvement with him over the past couple of years. Your loving commitment to his care, to the last moment, is rare and selfless. I am proud to know you as a friend, a selfless giver.
    I will speak with you soon and perhaps share a lunch when/if you’re able. With my sympathies,

Leave a Condolence
