Karen & family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and father. He was always so positive and you all supported him and took such great care of him. I really enjoyed taking care of him when he was a patient at OVMC but we all know he is in a better place now and no longer suffering.
My deepest sympathy,
Lee Dohm, RN
