We wish to thank all the nurses of Regina Health Regional Home Care who have cared for our mother, especially Theresa Simpson and Sherron Jordan, who will never be forgotten. Also the pharmacists at Hill Ave. Drugs for their advice and caring interest in making our mother’s last days comfortable. The kindness extended by friends and neighbors meant so much over the past several weeks. We greatly appreciate the exemplary care provided by Dr. Mickey Rostoker who joined the palliative care process during the final day, responsively giving of huge amounts of time, support and compassion. He demonstrated the highest professional standards for Margaret and for that the family is immensely grateful.
