David Rivard - RPNWhile Phyllis lived at Earls Court Village, I had the honour and pleasure of holding her hand through many tough moments, consoling her when she shared her deepest fears and struggles, encouraging her when she was down, and advocating for her best interest and comfort through her suffering. I became a nurse to serve the public, but my profession does not over-ride the truth that the life and passing of great people like Phyllis DOES impact us in a very real way. What a brave champion she was! Phyllis lived a testament of proven character. She of had a heart of kindness, a love for God and people, and an attitude of gratefulness, dispite her difficult circumstances. She truly was a joy to know! I only wish I could have been there in the end to say "good-bye". My condolences to Cheryl and Lisa, and to all of their respective families. You both were also such a blessing to serve! With sincerity and with my thoughts and prayers, David Rivard - RPN
