Thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Meeker Memorial Hospital for the tender way you took care of her. Thank you to the St. Cloud Hospital nurses and staff on the Oncology floor. The kindness you showed meant so much. I'd like to offer a special "thank you" to Hilltop Care Center for the grace and kindness you expressed in the tender care of Sandy. Thank you for the support and con- cern you showed me, always con- cerned that I had a place to sleep and making sure I had something to eat, enabling me to spend every minute with Sandy. To our cousin Irene, words aren't enough to show the gratitude and appreciation for the greatest gift of all - taking Sandy to Graceland for her birthday last year. You will always have a special place in my heart. That was the happiest I had ever seen her. A sincere thank-you also to Scott, his wife Alissa, Sue, Har- ley, and Annie for being there for Sandy and me. If it weren't for you. I don't know what I would have done. You lifted me up and sup- ported me when I needed someone to talk to or lean on, and a shoulder to cry on. Because of you all, I was able to be strong for Sandy. Thank you for your continued support and just being there for me now.
