I would like to thank all who reached out to give support, especially our niece Laura, also Claire & Bernie, Colette, Tom, and Carrie who all did all nighters. I also must thank Hospice for all their support and kindness. Leila requested no service. In lieu of flowers we suggest a gift to Hospice of Humboldt.
