    Thank you for sharing your experience. It touched me greatly. I hope others will take the time to read.

When we go home at the end of our shifts, we oftentimes bring our work with us in our hearts and minds.

    What a wonderful tribute to a man who sounds like such a good person. As a Hospice RN, I have patients who try to smile through their pain and it touches my heart.
