Finally, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone at St. Elizabeth Hospital who helped care for her - from E.R. to the staff on Four West (especially Brenda and Brenda). Because of their expert care of and loving kindness toward both Mom and us, our final moments with her will forever remain one of our most treasured memories.
