My younger brother, four years my junior, passed away in May, 2005 .... at his deathbed (At Calvary Hospital) were his two children, his mother and at least one more of my two remaining brothers. When I visited him two months prior, he was mostly lucid though well sedated, as pancreatic cancer had invaded his liver and two places in his spine in Nov. of 2004, when he fell and never again walked. At that time, Calvary had experience for 106 years in care management for terminally ill patients. I do not know how Calvary has progressed since then (10 years) but I would like to thank their staff for seeing to his comfort and assisting him to a relatively pain-free and honorable passage by giving them the review they deserve. His terminal care counselor met with us and answered any questions I had at the time. A spare bed was provided for me as I chose to stay overnight with him, having flown 1000 miles to spend some quality time with him during his final days. Thank you again, all staff at Calvary!!!
