Marilyn and Family,
I want to express my deepest sorrow for your loss. In the short time that I knew your husband and father, I could tell that he was truly a wonderful man. I feel privileged to have had a chance to know him and care for him. I want you to know that he wasn’t alone when he passed, I was there with him. Marilyn, it was a pleasure to meet you. You are an extraordinary women.
With deepest sympathy,
Amy – RN at LGH
