Mother wishes is to thank the hospital staff for all their compassionate care she received during her time with them.
“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also and he praises her. Many women have done excellently but you surpass them all.” (Proverb)
“Bonne Nuit Mom/Memere!”
