Special Thank you to Ashley and Elliot Wilton for rides to and from Doctor appointments, making meals and daily wellness checkups. Both never wanted anything in return. Ashley is an amazing nurse, who is so good at her job and an all around caring person.
Thank you to Penny and Bev Wilton who always extended an invitation to my dad for special occasions and family gatherings, and always made sure to send an extra plate home.
Sincere appreciation to the entire Thain family. Mike, Scott, Kathy, Julie. My dads best friend to this day, Mr Doug Thain who he worked with for many years.
To Denise and Rob LaRouche. His neighbor's we would like to thank you for always checking in on dad and helping with house projects, or to just stop by for a visit.

To My Dad.
Thank you for always being there for me. You worked so hard and you were full of advice and knowledge. I will always miss those phone calls about household projects, being a dad, sports, your grandkids, work and just wondering how you were feeling each day. I learned so much from you. This will never be the same. Love you with all I have.
Your best friend and son.
