I really like the last sentence of this....."He will be remembered as a true cowboy". And that he will for sure! I really looked up to my Uncle Bill and admired him for being that true cowboy. I will keep that in my mind forever, and will keep all his family in my thought and prayers.

My dear sweet Helen,
It was an honor to be Bill's hospice nurse. You took me into your hearts and I took you into mine. He touched me deeply and I will fondly remember him for a long while. He is now our angel.
