The family would like to thank Medi Home Health and Hospice – to the nurses and aid that took care of him. Also, to Louise Medley and Pori’Shua Jones. The family could not have asked for any better ladies to take care of their dad. Thank you from the bottom of our heart.
Per his request, he wanted no suits to be worn at his funeral. He asked that men wear nice blue jeans, dress pants and a nice shirt. He was not a suit man at all!!
