We want to also express our gratitude and appreciation to Pop’s longtime friend, Bobby Parnell for his role in taking care of our Dad. Without these 2 people, keeping our Dad home especially during his most difficult times would not have been possible. We also wish to express our sincere appreciation to the nurses and staff of Caris Health Care for their services and genuine care. SPECIAL THANKS to Dr. Jamie Slandzicki and his staff for their care and support for well over a decade and more importantly these last few months.
