A message to all from Pat

Thanks to all of you who shared the support during my illness. I loved getting your cards and little gifts.I must mention Jody a friend I met in 1995. Jody ended up living in Naples, Florida but during my illness kept in constant touch by phone and we were even able to see each other a few times. Jody and I shared many Shenanigans over the year as co-workers especially on St. Patrick’s Day!

The family would like to thank the crew of North Memorial Hospice for all their loving care.

In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Our son recently passed away and of course you never expect to have to deal with this for your children so my wife and I were not only devastated but didn’t know what to do or where to turn next. Evans-Nordby was recommended to us by our Priest and I’m so glad he did. From the moment I talked to Tina on the phone I could tell we were in good hands as she took care of every detail. We met with her the next day and she went through all the aspects of what we were to expect in the coming days, weeks, then months ahead. Every employee we had contact with at Evans-Nordby was kind, compassionate and extremely professional. Thanks Tina and to all at Evans-Nordby for making an unbearable experience at least tolerable.
