Whenever we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us but no one can really prepare us for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. May our Lord bless and comfort the bereaved family during this time of grief. May my sympathy and heartfelt condolences bring comfort to the family.

“King Arthur”... It was truly my honor to care for you during your fight against MDS. Not only were you a special patient, but you became a dear friend too. I will forever remember your smile and the sound of your laughter. You and MaryAnn brightened my day each day I knew you two were going to be coming in to see me, as I’m sure you have brightened the lives of so many many others. I will miss you. You will be remembered always and hold a special place in my heart forever. My sincerest heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the Peluso Family.
