My husband, H, was a patient when he passed away from complications from chemotherapy.  Thank you, Laura Slater, for your exemplary nursing care, stellar kindness, and compassion. You touched our hearts and comforted our spirits during the darkest moment of our lives. You made sure my husband was comfortable. You honored his dying wishes. You treated him with respect. You let him die with dignity. And when we thought our hearts were completely broken and we were dying as well, you treated us with compassion and grace. That fateful morning, we sat in my husband’s room, holding his hand and crying and feeling shattered. You would check in, prop my husband’s pillows and make sure he was comfortable. With your comforting touch, you eased my husband’s pain and my family’s breaking heart. You offered my family a reprieve during the worst moment in our lives. You were there checking in on us and taking care of us. Your smile and compassion became our lifeline that morning.
