We were extremely blessed to have a such great team around us! Dr. Aric Sudicky, there are no words to express our gratitude. You were in our corner fighting every step of the way. Your care and compassion are what every doctor should aspire to. Nurse Jody, Respiratory Therapist Julia, Oxygen Jody and PSW Wanda - Murray looked so forward to seeing you every week. A special thank you to Nicole, the 2nd floor nurse at STEGH for your unparalleled compassion. Thanks to all of you for making a difference and going the extra mile!

 

You didn’t like attention and you never looked for praise,

You grumbled at the weather, except for sunny days!

 

Your gardens were your refuge, tending each with loving care,

Challenged by the white-tailed deer that chewed your fruit trees bare!

 

It was always great with kids all home, until it got too loud,

You slipped away for a place to hide but I know they made you proud!

 

We made travel memories near and far and boy we had some fun,

Each one unique in its own way, I cannot pick just one.

 

Our lives were etched together, some with laughter, some with tears,

Would we change some things…yes maybe...not the blessed 48 years!

 

God saw that you were weary so He gave you peace and rest.

And for the time we had together, we were ALL so truly blessed!
