Many thanks to the doctors and nurses on the second floor at West Marion Community Hospital and Hospice of Marion County for the care given to dad in his last days. As his daughter I was blessed to spend his last days with him and will always cherish our time together. Dad was blessed with a full life and said at the end of his life that if it was his time, he was ready and knew he was headed home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His final resting place will be at Bushnell National Cemetery with a service to be held on March 31, 2022 at 1:30pm.
