Rest in Peace Daddy...

It has been a long month... My dad, Thomas Hailey lost his battle to cancer on March 28th at 9:45am. He was able to stay in his home, with family, hospice and hired nurses to care for him. My brother and I were able to be with him when he left, and I am so thankful that God gave us this opportunity to be with him. I am comforted by knowing he didn't suffer, and went peacefully.
