Compassion appreciated

Family grateful for care shown by Penticton hospital housekeeping department

On the morning of Sept. 7, my heart was ripped out of my chest and my world was forever changed. My sweet mother, at the young age of 55, slipped into a coma and died. My younger brother and I, along with our spouses, children, close friends and mom’s siblings, will always miss her.

But I sit now to write not about my family, but about the amazing support I received from my fellow employees at PRH housekeeping department.

Never before have I worked with so many wonderful, genuinely caring women (and a couple of men). As difficult as it was for me to return to work, my ladies helped ease the pain and actually made me laugh.

I will be forever grateful, so this letter is my official kudos to the PRH housekeepers. Thank you for befriending mom during her stay in ECU South; never forget how she used to rip around in her wheelchair at Mach 6!
