  5. I got great pleasure in meeting Mrs. Thompson when she was in the hospital this last time. She was a great women to have gotten to meet. You know being a student and all Mrs. Thompson made me feel so good about my performance in Respiratory Theraphy. I remembered one night in the ICU the doctor needed a blood gas to see if she could be weaned down on her oxygen and I went in there I was already nervous because I knew how bad they hurt to have them be done on a person and Mrs. Thompson told me not to worrry about it because she knew I would not hurt her. I felt so much better!!! After it was over she told me, see I did not know you had even done it yet. She was such a good lady. She will be greatly missed!! But she is a blessing in Heaven!!!! It was so nice meeting her daughter up there on the ICU side and the step down side. I am the one who got her nebulizer medicine changed for her so her heart would not race!! I am so sorry for your loss but I will look forward to see her again one day!!

  6. Our prays are with you and your family,sorry that we can not be with you and your family,we will be out of town.

  14. Chloe was such a joy to be around and was always the life of the party. She always had a joke to tell. I am blessed to have spent time with her at the Mitchell’s home on both joyous and tragic occasions.

  15. I guess everybody is lucky if they have a special favorite Aunt, and I was very lucky to have Aunt Chloe as mine. She treated me like a daughter. Whenever I’d visit, we’d talk for hours, and she was the most tolerant loving funny open person. Everything that ever came out of her mouth was a joke, a story, or a big hearted laugh. I always felt much lighter and loved after spending time with her. Susan, I can only hope my relationship with my daughter is nearly what yours was with Chloe. She will live forever in the hearts of those who knew her.
