“Singing the Praises” of Hospice House
Prince George, B.C. – A Sinclair Mills man is “singing the praises” of Prince George Hospice House.
68 year old Keith Ambler decided to go public and express his support for the agency following the care his late husband received earlier this year.
He said his partner, Harvey Sawyer, was transported to Hospice House suffering from an “extremely virulent form of lymphoma.”
“It was the last Friday in February when I had him transported by ambulance from Sinclair Mills to the hospital (UHNBC),” said Ambler. “He spent four days in the hospital flat on his back on a gurney when he was transported here the first Monday in March.”
Once he arrived he said the service was exceptional, especially after he proposed to Harvey and organized a wedding ceremony after 15 years of courtship a few days later.
“We had our formal wedding here and the staff, I cannot sing their praises enough,” noted Ambler. “Four months later our friends are still talking about our wedding, it was just incredible.”
He said they went above and beyond the call of duty. “The staff raided the kitchen, brought out party trays and a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I could not even begin to count the number of hugs I got from the staff here.”
Sadly Harvey died just three days later yet Keith noted,”If it wasn’t for the support that I got from the staff I wouldn’t have made it through.”
