    Dear Lisa and Bill,

    You two have had two terrible losses in just a very short time. When I talked to you at LMH, I was hopeful that your mother would recover. I guess it just wasn’t to be.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I consider myself blessed for having known Dorothy. Her bright smile and warm hugs brought joy to my heart. It was a pleasure to be her nurse.
