Letter: True professionalism when needed most


We wish to publicly express our appreciation to those who were instrumental in making our mother’s last two weeks the best they could be. Thanks to medical personnel and staff at Verde Valley Medical Center for the caring professionalism granted to Ruth Elizabeth Thomas during her recent stay. From the ER through ICU and Telemetry, all the technicians, nurses and physicians were helpful, competent, and courteous. When she made the decision to stop fighting and go home for her final days, that decision was accepted with respect and consideration. Thank you.

Verde Valley Community Hospice provided excellent care and support, making sure that she was comfortable, clean and pain-free during the last week of her life. The kindness and compassion of every member of the team was exemplary and we appreciate their help more than we can ever say.

And to Steve Palmer and everyone at Westcott Funeral Home, we extend our thanks for the respect shown and assistance in every aspect of planning for a peaceful rest and a meaningful celebration of our mother’s life.

The Family of Elizabeth Thomas:

Margie and Dave Beach

Bill and Peggie Thomas

Dick and Bessie Thomas

Don and Karin Thomas
