The family would like to thank the Baylor Scott & White doctors including the team headed by Dr. Heith White. We would also like to thank the wonderful ICU nurses who took the utmost care of our mother with respect, kindness and compassion.
Additionally, thank you to Luther Maxwell, Mom’s dear and special friend and caretaker for 14 years. Together they enjoyed traveling, gambling, dancing, not necessarily in that order. Mamma’s daughters would also like to give thanks to Luther for taking such good care of our Mom.
