Relation: room shared in hospital with Callie

My family only new Callie in the last week of her life. Right up to the end Callie was giving, happy and loving.My mother in law Gian (Jan) was always a quiet solitude woman, but with Callie, Bill and their friends John and Ed (who would light up the room with music and song ) brought Gian out of her shell Callie shared with us some songs she had written and it was beautiful sight. She fought through her illness with hope and courage. I will always be grateful for the short but wonderful time we as a family had to share with Callie and her family. My deepest condolences to Bill and his family. Love Connie,Ed,Stephanie,Paul Goertson
