The loving care they received from all the staff at Brandon Wilde made their lives safer and more enjoyable. The family would like to thank Dr. Paul Fischer for his continuous compassionate care over the past 14 years as well as Jane's nurses Tracy Frye, Nydia Honore-Roach, Jenny Phillips and CNA Darcie and many others.
