I want to thank all the doctors and nurses in the emergency department at St. Joseph Hospital. They all treated Tom so well and never acted like it was a burden to them. Especially Dr. Devaul, Dr. Dhinsa, Dr. Hahn and Dr. Ennis, all the nurses who took care of him, Sharon, Jan, Karen, Julie, Moe, Suzie, Deb and Greg. I thank you. I loved him so much. Tom’s mother.
