To all the staff on VP2 South at the Caribou Memorial Veterans Pavilion, who not only provided wonderful care to Art but who also became a part of our family and we are forever grateful. We love you and we can’t thank you enough for the kindness you have shown to Art over time. A special thank you to Reverend David Pilling and Reverend Denine Morgan for all the prayers and support that you have shown to Art and his family during this difficult time.
Art was a hardworking, devoted man who loved his family dearly, especially his grandchildren who were the love of his life. It’s very comforting to know that he will go hand in hand with his mother who passed the day prior on May 6th and they will walk this journey together.
