Special thanks to the homecare staff at Greendale Estate and the Menno Home for their kind and compassionate care for Dan. Also, special thanks to his friends at Greendale Estate who looked in on Dan regularly to make sure he was okay, and to his friend Francois who would also run errands for him in the last months when Dan was no longer able to walk uptown.
