Awww Shelley, I just read about your dear Mom’s moving on to her Heavenly home. I know it has been a trying time of recent years for you, but take comfort that she is now singing with the angels ... how I enjoyed hearing her lovely tunes each evening as we shared the same hospital room. You warned me about her unusual “salty” language towards the nursing staff, and I did hear “those” words, but I believe I also witnessed Susan’s true self/soul when she would sweetly smile and nod her head at me, when I spoke to her! How I loved seeing the sweet, caring interaction between your Mom and Dad when he visited!Shelley, you were such a loving, faithful daughter to your Mom, and furthermore,I truly appreciate our friendly chats during those long weeks when I shared a room on the Rehab. floor of NHH.Take care dear!Sending hugs and God Bless, Donna Jacobs-McCourt (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Our sincere condolences on Susan's passing. We will miss our visits in the cafeteria at the hospital with her and Shelley. About a week ago she saw mom and I coming from the parking lot to the entrance of the hospital and she started waving from the side window. Mom and i will treasure that memory. It was a pleasure to spend time with her and Shelley. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
My thoughts are with you at this time of sadness. It made me smile when Susan would smile when you held her hand. My students and myself were honoured to be able to care for her when we at NHH. Wendy Symons, Clinical Instructor Trent University
