It is a special person who can make a stranger feel like she is your best friend and there for you no matter what.

Lavasha took the time to make sure I was comfortable and all my needs were met.  This morning tragedy struck when the Chaplin and a doctor woke me to tell me my brother had a massive heart attack at Aberdeen and passed away in the ER.  I had them get Lavasha right away and she came and took me in her arms and held me tightly while I cried, she gave me such comfort with her words and her compassion.  Nurses are all smart and knowledgeable about their job but it is a special person who can make a stranger feel like she is your best friend and there for you no matter what.  Lavasha embodies the phrase "Angel of Mercy".  Without her, I don't know how I could have gotten through today without ending up in the psych ward.  I will never forget her.  I will miss her very much when I am discharged.  She also stayed after her shift ended, unpaid, to hunt down information about low-cost cremation for me even though I could see she was tired.  When I told her she didn't have to do it she said, "yes I do or I will toss and turn all night and not be able to sleep".
