Nurse makes ‘terrifying time less daunting’ for family of three

“During the last month of my husband’s life, Kate came into our lives.  She went out of her way to make a terrifying time less daunting and if we needed anything she was always willing to help.  She encouraged us, laughed with us and most importantly, made our daughter comfortable in a place that is scary for children.  Kate’s warm smile helped put our daughter at ease and allowing her [our daughter] to check Dad’s temperature and blood pressure was the highlight of her visit.  Kate also helped him feel like a father for a few short moments by ensuring he was finished his transfusions for the day allowing her [our daughter] to snuggle into bed with Dad.  Those hugs were the first they had been able to share in over a month and a half.  For an hour or two we were almost a normal family again.  I will never forget her kindness; her generous spirit and how she made the three of us feel.  For that I will be eternally grateful.  Thank you Kate.”
