I am so very sorry for you loss, my prayers are with you and may God give you peace and comfort in this difficult time. Mrs. Ethel was very special to me. I am a hospice volunteer for Amedisys and have been visiting with her for a long time. I regrett that I only got to meet Mary Lee but I enjoyed by visits with Mrs. Ethel she talk about Frank and Kim at each visit. I will miss her.
