Relation: nursing staff

I am so sorry about the loss of Aaron. I always looked forward to Wednesday when Aaron would come to hospital. He would spend the time and patients to teach me about Indigenous/First Nations/Cree traditions. No question was “a dumb question” He always spoke of his family and his culture with great love, esp his new granddaughter. He always arrived with a big smile on his face, which brightened all of our days He will be sorely missed by all the nursing staff here.
