Condolence from Jane Gray RN on June 3rd, 2019 5:00 pm

Sending prayers of strength to Mr Strahan’s family. He was one of my favorite residents when he lived at Peak. He always had a smile and a story to tell whenever I did his treatments. You all were very blessed to call him “Dad” and I am sure you have many memories to remember him by. He always talked about how proud he was of his family.

I offer my sincerest condolences to Jennifer, Sherri and family including all those grandchildren. Although I never had the pleasure to meet Mr. Strahan, I knew what kind of man that he was, through knowing his beautiful, caring and kind daughters and grandchildren that he influenced to become . I’m certain that your father was so happy to be able to spend the later years of his life so close to his family, watching his children and grandchildren grow into the special people that they are today. Just know that your father lives on in each of you, and will keep watch over his family forever.
