A huge Thank You to the Doctors and Nurses at the Placentia Health Care Centre, Dr H Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Clinic and the Health Science Centre, especially Dr. Lee and all the ICU nursing staff. The amount of care and compassion you've shown him and us did not go unnoticed. We will be forever grateful for everything you have done over the past few weeks to make him feel cared for and comfortable.
Our dad always wore a smile, always had something funny to say to make you laugh, always loved a good time and those parts of songs he knew, we all know he would belt them out. His favourite time of the year was certainly Christmas. He loved seeing people come for a visit, a drink, a song and a scuff or two. We have wonderful memories with him that we will cherish forever. Those memories will help us on the days we miss him the most.
