He remained focused on others

My Dad who died from colon cancer but who was a constant source of strength and love for his family and a course of humour and grace to all his wonderful caregivers – he was able to remain at home until his final few days and could not have done so without his amazing caregivers. Despite 27 falls, a result of nerve involvement, he remained focused on others and enjoyed life right up until he died. One of his many caregivers came to the funeral and there is a bench with his name in city park so his friends can still remember him. I planted his favourite tree in our yard so he will always be with us too.
