David
Wine Tasting

Every now and again, the loved one of an ABODE Guest will refer another sweet soul to us. Such was the case with David, who joined us in our Green Room in December under the care of VITAS Hospice. We’d taken care of Brian’s wife a few years back, so when his friend David got sick, Brian suggested that he come to ABODE, too.

David was an Army Vet and came from a military family. When Retired Air Force Colonel Hal Smarkola arrived to share a final salute, they all joined in, including his mom. David was born in Orleans, France, and traveled with his family as a military “brat” half his life. He served his country for 12 years.
