They have done so much for her; making her long life more comfortable and enjoyable. The last 11 months, Stella had been under the exceptional good care of Bluewater Health 5th Floor. Kathy and all the nurses and care workers certainly need to be commended for the extra attention they gave to Stella to keep her comfortable. Special thanks also to Bayshore nurses and caregivers over the last several years for their loving care and attention, and especially to Steff Boyle who always brought an extra big smile to her face whenever they got together.
