  1. Sincere sympathies for your loss. Your dad, Art, was such a good friend to my dad, Ziggy. Art’s time with Ziggy the last three weeks that my dad was at Trillium Woods Hospice meant so much to Ziggy. Art even brought old photo albums with him daily and they had fun reminiscing about their time together down in Marco Island, Fla. and their Latvian theater group productions. Rest assured they are together once again reminiscing, playing cards and joking around! Hope you find peace in your family memories.
