Jerry’s family extends a special thank you to Dr Mathew and his staff at Redwood Renal for their years of excellent care. Also hats off to the amazing staff at dialysis who made Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays bearable considering how much he hated sitting in a chair for 5 hours at a time. And much appreciation to the SJH PCU nurses for the comfort care they provided to Jerry in his final days. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
