    Thank you so much for sharing this. But, thank you even more for being there for this family in a way that I'm sure they will always remember.

You helped them redeem the little that was salvageable from a terribly sad situation. And you helped a man become forever a daddy.

    Thank you on their behalf.

    Elvish, honey, you take my breath away.
    This story is heart tearing, so sad, yet you have to stand up and see how important you were in the midst of this family and their intense grief.

    Anyone in their position would be lucky to have you as their nurse,......even if this story of human hurt has me in tears as I type, it's soo sad.

    Keep being just you babe, you do it so well.......:heartbeat
