I'm glad to hear that your dad is doing better. Thanks for letting us know. I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers for a while yet though.

Recliner Sofas can provide comfortable seating options for family rooms and living rooms.

Thanks, Church and Diane. Yes, this comment is really late, but it's here.

Jessica, I can't tell you how moved I am by your concern. From his hospital bed, my father asked me, "What will provide comfortable seating options for your family room and/or living room?" And I held his weak hand in mine and I cried because I didn't know the answer.

Now, thanks to you, I can tell him.
