I enjoyed taking care of Mr. Lawhorn in the hospital. He was such a great patient. Never complained about anything and always willing to do whatever we needed to do with him. I could tell he was a very special person. To all family I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for all your help Debbie while he was in the hospital. All of us nurses were devastated and talked about how much we enjoyed taking care of him. You all will be in my prayers.
