My grandfather also passed away at this home. I only wish I would have known about it sooner! My grandfather passed away the same evening we brought him to the home. The care and support offered was extraordinary! The home was beautiful and I'm ever so thankful that this home was developed for such a wonderful cause!

I enjoyed reading about the Bruns House, but I had hoped to see a picture or two which I think would be very helpful. Thank you, Fern Aagard
