Special thanks to the staff of the 4th & 5th floors and the palliative care unit at the Moncton Hospital for the excellent care given to Myrna.

In her own words, she wanted to express “My sincere thanks to my friend and son-in-law, James Veneau, who gave me love, support and care during some very hard times. I was always number one to him and earned the title of being a good old country girl that could do what she wanted, when she wanted. His love for me was unconditional, neither did he expect anything or want anything.”
