Kingman Letter: Thanks from the family of Bill Gilfoil

We would like to thank the medical teams that provided care for our beloved husband, father and grandfather on June 29, 2012.

We are thankful for the proficiency of the first responders from NACFD and AMR that transported Bill Gilfoil to the ER early that morning, the emergency room staff, Kassie from 2C and Denise, the RN from Joan and Diana's Hospice House, and their staff. Realizing that they could no longer medically help our loved one, they provided him with the comfort that he would need in his fragile condition in order to make his passing less stressful.

On July 21, the Patriot Guard Riders provided the family with an escort to Bill's memorial. Since we have now been recipients of the services they provide, we would like to say that they have a difficult task to do and yet they come out in the extreme heat or cold and accomplish it with much compassion toward the already grieving families. We thank you, Patriot Guard Riders.

And lastly, we want to thank the Kingman Elks Lodge No. 468 and officers who were there to help us with his memorial and take care of all of the fine details.

Those of you who provided your help and services behind the scenes out of your respect and love for Bill, thank you so much.

All of you have helped make such a difficult time a little easier. Again, we thank you.

Family of Bill Gilfoil

Kingman
