The family would like to thank Thedacare @Home nurse Lisa and Thedacare Hospice, Humana Nurse Cindy, and all the staff at Prairie Homes in Menasha. You took such wonderful care of George and it gave the family great comfort. A special thanks to his nephew Pat Foth, who was there when needed.

Most of all, the Geurts children would like to thank Mom, who made it possible for Dad to remain at home for as long as possible. This meant a lot to him and us.
