Very Old Dad

Thank you for an emotional and heartwarming journey with you and your Very Old Dad. It especially meaningful for those of us who have watched parents we’ve adored our entire lives gradually become sick and/or old. As challenging as it is, you remind us to cherish the moments as there are precious few remaining.
