We would like to thank Prairie Homes Assisted Living past and present staff and ThedaCare hospice, both for there loving support, compassion, and care.
There are several ways to describe what the
word “Dad” means to us:
Integrity, a person with strong moral principles;
Industrious, a hardworking person;
Commitment, a dedicated and loyal person;
Dependable, a person who you can trust and rely on;
Supportive, a caring and encouraging person;
Any man can be a father
but only a few deserve to be called Dad.
Because of the type of man you have always been
it is the way we would describe you!
Thank you for being such a wonderful provider
for our family and a loving and supportive Dad.
Thank you for being our Dad!
We will miss you!
