The Power of Community
A member of his community who works with seniors posted a selfie with Dad on her last visit before "the world changed (as she put it) and asked for cards for Dad on a County Facebook page since Dad has no family at all in the Pacific Northwest.
Not only were their 90 comments, but about a dozen people that used to work with Dad at his employer of 30+ years who are still in the community commented as to how much they loved my Dad and how they plan to visit him when the restrictions are lifted.
A Patriot Guard has also commented about doing something special for him with all the Veterans on their motorcycles on his big day. I'm also going to try and get one of his beloved Dairy Queen cakes to him. So many people coming together to honor him, even if from a distance.
