Post Script: The following Friday morning Berta called. Pedro passed away peacefully that morning. His wife, daughter and sister were with him in his final moments.
While the previous post tells of my brief visit in San Diego, I realize it does not adequately express all that Al’s family did to care for Pedro. Throughout difficult times that included emergencies, hospitalizations, medical appointments and hospice care, the family did all they could to ensure that Pedro was always treated with respect and dignity. Their love and care for him was clearly evident.
To Al’s family – May God bless and comfort you in your sorrow and bring peace to you hearts. Amen.
