We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the excellent care that was given to our mom, Mary. There are so many of you that deserve a personal thank you, but we don't want to miss anyone that provided mom with the quality of care she received on a daily basis.
We know by the outpouring of support that we received during mom's final struggle, that she was the favorite of many of you. One family member that experienced this over and over during her final day was very touched by the emotions shown through the countless hugs, kisses, wishes of farewell and tears shown by so many of the staff. We found great comfort that strangers that became mom's friends loved her as much as we do.
We thank you for the gentle, loving care that was provided for mom. The gentle bath times, the smiles, the conversations to make long days less of a struggle. Thank you for the pushes down the hallway when she was too tired and weak to do for herself. Thank you for allowing her to be as independent as she could be. Thank you for the warm touches to let her know she was loved. Thank you for the warm welcomes on her returns from the hospital. Thank you for treating her with dignity, respect and gentleness. Thank you for your patience as she struggled to voice her concerns and needs. Thank you for your understanding with the endless phone calls regarding her care. Thank you for the support you gave her family. Thank you for the frienships. Thank you for being blessings in moms life and in our lives.
We wish that each of you find comfor as well in knowing that you are a special gift to so many people. We pray that God will continue to keep you in his loving care and guide you as you provide the same care to other families loved ones.
God bless each of you.
Love from the family of Mary D.
