The family wants to thank all the nurses on 4th floor at the Topeka Va and doctors who cared for him during his final time with us.  A BIG SPECIAL  thank you to nurse Devan for going above and beyond to help his daughter in making the fingerprint items that you went out of the way to purchase on your lunch break with her money  so Serenity would have something to remember him by. Also to VA officer Joe for making his daughter feel more at ease during her father's final days and for making her laugh when she needed it the most.   We all did. Thank you to the church for the beautiful quilts you gave us.
