A very special and heartfelt thank you goes out to Dr. Dhaliwal and Dr. Vermaak along with the nurses and support staff both at the Rivers Clinic and Rivers Westwood Lodge Personal Care Home. We would like to extend a special thank you to all of the home care workers that took such great care of Dad while he was still able to stay at home before moving to the care home. We can not leave out the Brandon Regional Health Centre, they helped our sweet dad through some very difficult times.

Dad is back with Mom
and they are hand in hand once again.
May God's never ending blessings
rest on us all.
Love you Dad, Love you Mom

- Your loving children and their families
