To all the girls and guys,

Thank you so much for taking such excellent care of my Dad. I don't recall he ever had any complaints which gave our family total peace of mind. He loved all the special attention he received (smackers & smiles). You all tended to his every need. Also treated me, Howie and our family with such warmth and kindness.

Thanks too for all of you who showed your love to Daddy and our family by coming to the visitation and his service. When I thought about it, after being at Riverways for almost three years, I imagine he was part of your family , not just a resident.

Keep up the good work. I'll be in to visit and I will miss you all. Charlie too!!

Much Love,
