Family offers thanks

RUSHVILLE — Dear Editor:

The Morrell family would like to thank all the people who sent cards, flowers, and donations in memory of our mother, Elizabeth Morrell, who recently passed away. She was 93 years old and lived a full and rich life. She was a pillar of support for her late husband George H. Morrell, my brother and I, as well as our wives and children.  We will truly miss her, but it was her time and none of us will live forever.

While only a member of St. Paul’s Methodist Church for six months or so, the love and support the members of that church gave my mother was unbelievable.

My mother just loved you, Jan, and you helped so much to ease her mental discomfort in the last several weeks. Mom was failing mentally and physically despite successful surgeries. She knew her memory was failing and would often ask me what was wrong with her head. You did make a difference.

Special thanks to Lori Hill, who gave me invaluable advice and assistance on that fateful night when my mother broke her leg. Not enough can be said for the nurses and staff at Rush Memorial Hospital who went over and above what is required to keep someone comfortable. Carrie Tressler and Janie Manning just made things happen and would work around those inconvenient “issues” that manage to come up when things don’t quite go as planned.  Lastly, we would like to thank Bill Keaton for the legal, moral, and ethical advice he gave us in the management of mother’s care.

George Morrell

Douglas Morrell, M.D.
