Honorary pallbearers are Jonathan Holland and Wayne Hawthorne. The family would like to thank Roxanne Dunsford and all the Hospice nurses. They were very sweet and informative. They did a remarkable job. They would also like to thank Dr. David Smith; he has been there for us through everything. A special thanks to Angela, one of the nurses, she went beyond the means of a nurse. Angela loved listening to stories about him and the family. She always made sure he was comfortable and she would make us laugh to keep us more at ease about the situation. Jay Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
