To Mr. Bill Komoski, you gave your love, faith and understanding to Dad and our family - our deepest thanks will never be enough. Drs Chan and Everall, Sherry Henderson RN and the incredible nurses of Palliative Care and Hospice, we are so thankful for the care and compassion you each showed to Dad. We remain indebted to you for making his final journey a gentle, loving experience. Per Dad’s request there will not be a service but a private family burial will be held at a later date.
