The family would like to thank her niece Elizabeth Patey for her willingness to be a support for her Aunt Pearl & the family in her final days.  They would also like the thank Dr Smallwood and the nursing staff at Western Health as well as Dr Lafferty and the nursing staff of the Western Health Palliative Care Unit in Corner Brook.  On all levels, the care provided to Pearl was exceptional in her final days.  Her family will be forever grateful.
