Prayers to all the family. I so enjoyed taking care of Ms. Duty and meeting the family; I hated that we met under those circumstances. You all could turn a bad day into a good one. Thank you for allowing me to run my big mouth and for making me laugh. God Bless each of you. 💙 Mel-CVMC Respiratory Therapist.
