al mcdouall on September 19, 2014 at 10:41 am I can concur with Margaret regarding Robert . I only knew him for a short few weeks in my capacity as a hospice volunteer . In that time I too enjoyed his wit and company . As we “toured” the hallways there was always a “hello” to the staff and patients along the way . Everyone had a smile for Robert . There were many painful moments for him , but he never complained at all . A very stoic and proud Scotsman throughout his life’s journey . At the news of his passing nurse Marie shed a tear or two as , I’m sure, many staff felt a loss too . His family can take much comfort knowing all the hospital staff respected his suffering and made Robert’s final weeks as comfortable as possible .
