The harder the life, the finer the person." Don, beloved husband, father of five, grandfather, great-grand-father. This kind and gentle man had a gift of making you laugh any time you met, who managed to get two scoops of ice cream when everyone else had but one. He loved playing music, adding his own rhythmic beat to the original. Don's family thanks Group Health Hospice staff for their tremendous help and caring.
What Cancer Can't Do Cancer is so limited..... It cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope, it cannot corrode faith, it cannot eat away peace. It cannot destroy confidence, it cannot kill friendship, it cannot shut out memories. It cannot silence courage, it cannot invade the soul, it cannot reduce eternal life, it cannot quench the spirit. It cannot lessen the power of the RESURRECTION
