The family would like to extend a very special “Thank You” to Adoration Home Health for the love and attention they have shown our dad and to the special nurses Shelia, Brenda, Julie, and Curtis, you are truly angels on earth.

As your family is let to carry on your legacy, our hearts and souls are heavy with a part missing that can never be filled. Fly high with your wings into the loving arms of our heavenly father, who awaits to cradle you in his loving arms.

As we look to the heavens every second, minute, and hour we know you will be watching and protecting us forever and a day, until we meet again. You are the most loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, son, brother, best friend, and hero a family could have. We will forever love you, miss you, remember, and honor you. “To the world you are Dad, to our family you are the world.” Per the wished of the Cross family there will be no service.
