Touch of kindness

The Amaral family thanks everyone at Hospice of the Foothills, especially Diane Miessler, Lynn Craford and Sharon Joy, for their careful and loving assistance of Frank and our family during the last six months of his life. We also thank Home Instead Senior Care, especially Ken Lauer and Maria Quimby, for their support services during Frank’s last few weeks; everyone at Hooper and Weaver for their quiet, efficient and professional handling of difficult details; and everyone at St. Canice Ladies Guild, especially Fran Andre, for the beautiful reception they created and staffed. Finally, we thank the many friends who came to visit us, who sent cards and flowers and shared in our celebration of Frank’s life. We are still feeling the touch of your love and kindness.
