Eight years is a long time for a nurse to have a patient....eight years to get to know the family...and it would take me eight years to tell you how wonderful your family is...Eight years of devotion shown to a husband and father....I was blessed to be a part of the last eight years. I love you all, dearly....Judy, Frank, David, Donald and Delora...May the peace and comfort of our gracious Lord surround you and your precious families during this time....Love, Ms. Kay
