    She spent most of her time in the Family Lounge, where she comforted families who had loved ones in the Intensive Care Unit. She logged more than 6,000 hours of volunteer service from October 1973 to May 2003, said Pamela Mills, manager of Volunteer Services.
    Wow! What an awesome person...

    That is sad. I hope Bud can get past this in time. Is there an address to send a condolence card to Bud?
