Denny also said in the post:

I can’t say thank you enough to everyone at Presby. That place has been my home for the last three months and everyone there has felt like family. I’ve spoken many times about the staff on 6fg, but I have felt so much love throughout the entire hospital. From the lady at the information desk that wept when she found out Stacy passed, to the cleaning lady whom I never met pull aside in the hallway to tell me she is praying for me and my son. I can’t forget the sweet ladies in the cafeteria who always took good care of me. One in particular would whisper to me “how’s he doing?” almost everyday. The Patient Relations Department helped me out in a huge way and I’ll be forever grateful. Just about everyday a different person would ask about Mason and let me know they’re praying for him. I’m glad to be leaving and beginning the next chapter, but I will definitely miss that place.
