When I was ready, Dr. Summers and her husband showed up at my door, and I could instantly sense their spirits were kind and caring. I knew immediately that I had made the right decision. I never looked back or regretted it. They made this incredibly difficult time as good as it could possibly be. Thank you for making his passing painless and truly humane."
