"I wanted to express my thoughts to you on the care my mother received from Apex. As I told Catherine on the last night she was here, they say that if you live long enough, your quality of life inevitably declines in your last years.  I can honestly say that despite my mother and I practically being attached at the hip for the 64 years of my life and both of us always being squarely in each others' corners with complete love and devotion, the care she received from Apex actually improved my mom's quality of life at the end.

There is no one at Apex with whom I ever had any kind of exchange- many times by phone with Erika and in person with Brenda, Catherine, Brooke, Amy, Rose, Lem, JC, Jenny (I must be forgetting someone) that wasn't the warmest, kindest, most responsive, most professional yet personally comforting it could be.  Even the DME and pharmacy personnel you sent were kind and helpful. My mom had some brief discomfort, but was always grateful for the delicate application of extraordinary skills that her Apex caregivers provided.  I'm glad she was able to express that on occasion, and know that if she had been able to find the words, she would have voiced her genuine thanks to each of them at every visit.  From both of us, you should know how deeply we appreciate each person's presence and truly meaningful contributions through such an important time and how much quality, comfort and confidence everyone brought to both my mom and me.

I have no suggestions or thoughts regarding what could possibly be done to improve these months for my mom or me.  Before you came on, I struggled somewhat trying to reconcile having enough time to process and mourn the reality of this part of my relationship with my mother and also ensure each and every need and want she had was met at every moment.  I don't suppose it's easy for any family member to ever feel that they have done enough for a loved one, but as soon as Apex arrived I felt that she not only had the best care possible, but that I was now given the opportunity to be the best daughter possible.

I'm sad that she's not here, and I miss her like crazy already.  However, the loving care she received from everyone at Apex will forever be with me as a profound comfort that all her days were also the best that they could be.  You gave my mom and me the eternal gift of time together to express repeatedly how much we loved each other which leaves me with only gratitude for everything that everyone did, and no regrets.

I think, though, that everyone who attended to her gave her that; and I cannot imagine anything more important she or I could ask for on this earth.

Please give my love to Erika, Brenda, Catherine, Brooke, Amy, Rose, Lem, JC, Jenny and everyone else that there who supports them in doing an exceptionally challenging job so exceptionally.

We will never forget any of you at Apex Hospice.  You deserve the most rewarding, loving, fulfilling lives humanly possible, and you will be in my thoughts and prayers forever."
