Maria Geriane from North Aurora, IL

"Thank you Denise for thinking of me and calling the clinic of Carl's passing. I am so sad about this news. In the very short time I have worked with him I have learned how good of a person he is behind the huff and gruff exterior. He would talk about you his family all the time in between snoozing during treatments. I felt like I knew his girls before I even met you all.May the Lord comfort you Denise, Patti, Diane and Marcia during this most sorrowful time. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. May he rest in peace."
