"My Dad (Bud Hawk) spent years traveling the city, county, and country representing the Medal of Honor. But during his last year, all he wanted was to stay at home where he was comfortable and felt safe. His Comfort Keepers were with him 24/7 during that time. They allowed him to pass at home with the dignity and respect he deserved and provided our family with the comfort of knowing he was getting the best care possible."
