    The Wadsworth family would like to express our sincerest appreciation for the Heard County Firemen and EMT’s, the VitalCare associates, and Amedysis Home Health nurses, therapists and aides for everything they have done for Daddy over the past few years. It has meant alot to us that they have been there and in most cases, each of them have become like a member of the family.
