We write to you this email with a mixture of emotions, because Dad has finally gone Home. At a time when many have had to spend their final days alone, we are grateful that he was able to be cared for at home through hospice and with the love of his family surrounding him. Thank you to everyone who has emailed or reached out to him during these past days. Your love and prayers were clearly present even through the hardest of times. Special thanks to his nurse siblings who took time off so they could care for him at home, and to all who watched him overnight these last few days. We were able to say goodbye to him even last night, which was a blessing.
We will be in touch with visitation and funeral arrangements in the next couple of days, as plans are finalized. We hope that both will take place this weekend. We will do our best to respect social distancing guidelines, and plan to ensure a livestream for all who can’t attend, including Dad’s loved ones in Haiti and elsewhere.
James and Rachel for the family
