Citrus Valley Hospice

Jerry and Lorraine Lyon, Green Valley Lake

Dear Jeanne,

I can't say enough Thank You's to you and Citrus Valley Hospice for all the great care you gave to Dad. I know he gave you a bad time, just his way...
He is now with Mom - not sure if she was ready - but it sure gives me and Linda peace to know we'll be together some day.
You, Damisha and Lisa have been our strength and courage. I know you are all helping others now. They are the lucky ones.

God Bless, Gerri

Dear Citrus Valley Hospice,

Thank you for taking such good care of my friend's Dad - Gerald Lyon. The caseworker was Jeanne B. - a special thank you to her!
Enclosed is my donation to Hospice in Gerald Lyon's memory. God bless you for the good work that you do.

Sincerely, Diana

"Sixteen years ago today, I sat in your hospital wondering if my baby was going to die. I was young, and was a train wreck emotionally when we arrived for the birth of my first child. My wife had a very extended attempt at natural birth, only to realize that a C-section was going to be our best option. After a successful procedure, my daughter was born. Apparently, she had fluid in her lungs, and was having a hard time breathing. So I sat there alone, my wife in recovery somewhere in the hospital, thinking, "My baby is going to die." Then your NICU unit kicked into gear. What an amazing group of people they were. I will never forget the comfort I had knowing that those caring professionals were giving their all to save my baby. Sixteen years later, I have a beautiful, intelligent, funny, amazing daughter that blesses my life every day. Thank you for your devotion, care, and love that you gave her during those difficult hours. Keep up the good work, and know that you are not forgotten. You can't imagine the difference you make. Thank you."

To Whom It May Concern:

I was recently at the Hospital in Covina and I could not stop thinking about the way the Doctors, the Staff, the Nurses, and the trainees have treated me. The entire Staff including Paramedics treated me with such class and dignity that I had to let the Administrative Office know the quality on their staff which is incomparable to any other Hospital that I have been which I exclude Queen of the Valley which I found so dignified.

The timing of my medication, my meals and other Services was way beyond dignity and compare. I must add that the hospital doctors, and my doctor, Doctor Vahid Javaharian, Doctor Donna Dudziak, and my Nurses, Marilyn, Susie, Raquel, Clarissa, Roberta, Sarah the Student and Yanet were all excellent in the care that they gave me. I miss their presence, and all the other smiling faces of the other Nurses, and they sure made my illness kind of fun, sort of speaking like being at home that I wanted to stay longer.

I pray for all of you that are helping the Elderly, and the sick, for God's guidance, and for the Doctors, the Paramedic officers and either volunteering or qualified registered Nurses to give you all the strength that we all need to carry on their Mission with such Caring with Love, Dignity and Compassion, and for someday we can all come together and give all these fine people that care that someday we all need and including their pensions that they all very well deserved.

I thank you from the very bottom of my heart and soul, and if I can be of any help in contributing in any which way I would like to participate.

To all the staff and social workers in Citrus Valley Hospice,

My sisters and I truly appreciation you taken care of my mom during the last five days of her life.
We are especially touched by your understanding and support. May God bless every one of you and your service.

To each of you who had a role in the case of my dad over the last four years, my heartfelt thanks.

Your kindness, compassion, humor, and excellent care gave him dignity and comfort, for which our family is truly grateful. It was touching to hear some of your stories and to see your obvious affection for him. He was a character...I hope this honorarium can help to provide services to another family in the way you helped ours. Thank you all.

With gratitude, S.G.

Enclosed find a check. This is in memory of our very good friend. Mrs. L.B. of Santa Barbara.

My husband died in your facility on April 18, 2002. We were so very pleased with his short stay at your hospital. Your loving and caring attitude was great. It helped us through a very difficult time. I hope when my time comes, I will be put in such a loving institution.

Sincerely yours,
Dorothy A. Jones
