Her sister Alexis was a near constant companion and huge help providing comfort and care right up to the end. Hospice was a great help the last two weeks and we commend the kind and caring people from this vital agency. Special thanks also to her personal physician, Dr. Jonathon Kessler, who stayed on her case to the end, as well as the wonderful personal care aides were able to be hired to help provide care for Kaye around the clock the last few weeks. This was a great comfort to her.
