I want to thank you for all the help you and your crew provided, and commend the courtesy and professionalism your flight crew showed us in getting my father home.
My father was suffering from congestive heart failure, and it was his wish to go home before he died; your team made that possible. For that I thank you.
He passed away quietly in his own home a week later, surrounded by his wife and several of his children. He was 96.
Again, thank you very much.
