There are so many people to thank, the amazing nurses and aides on the medical unit at the Portage District General Hospital, Cathy Hogue (social worker), Debbie Janzen (Palliative Care nurse), Betty Klassen and Ellie May Lilyhome for allowing Mom to stay all those weeks, and all of our family and friends for visiting, their prayers, and support.
