To the editor:

The family of Roby L. Luffman would like to express our sincere gratitude to Wellcare Hospice of Bermuda Run, which treated our husband, father, grandfather and great-granfather with dignity, respect and loving care. This wonderful organizatiobn was always just a phone call away for more than 600 days. Our family now has new friends that will always have a special place in our hearts.

We would like to say a special thank you to Shirl. She was always there when we needed her and she was always able to make daddy laugh on his worst days, Kyle and Bethany were kind, knowledgeable and devoted nurses. The chaplain, Victoria, has an angelic spirit and she loved, supported and gave us spiritual guidance. Dianne, the director, was just simply amazing and helped us get through some dark times. Kelby, the social worker, showed us loved and compassion.

Also, we would like to express special thanks to the Fork Volunteer Fire Department and Davie County Rescue Squad. Davie County is fortunate to have such dedicated volunteers who we now call special friends.

And last but not least, thank you to all of our neighbors and friends in Hickory Hill. The way all of you came together to feed us, to pray with us and to console us was incredible.
