The family would like to give a special thank you to the staff at St. Paul Villa and St. Paul Hospice for the excellent and compassionate care he received for the past 4 ½ years.  Also a “special thank you “to Bonnie who always made sure dad got his special meal of potato pancakes. 

We love you dad, but we know it was time to reunite with mom.  We will always remember the good times spent with you.  Have a “brandy” on us.
