"Care of my late spouse"

Starting with the ambulance staff who attended to my spouse on the bathroom floor of our apartment. The nurses and doctors in Emergency next to the heart wards where they stayed for over a month.  My spouse was treated by doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and the tea ladies with the utmost respect.

To all these wonderful people including the social workers and ward staff,  everybody worked hard to get my spouse well again but they lost their battle surrounded by me, our children and our grandchildren. My spouse passed away with great dignity. We lost the love of our lives. Thank you all. I hope I didn't leave anyone out.
