On Saturday, November 16, 2013, a long-term patient Andre*, left our earth to receive his healing in heaven. Andre had a chronic disease that kept him hooked to oxygen 24-7. Our prayers are with Andre for eternal rest and for his family. “Mother, please don’t worry. When you pray things will change,” is from a song that Andre composed and would sing to visitors. Due to his condition, Andre was unable to leave the hospital to visit family, but he had a cell phone to be able to speak to his grandmother. St. Damien is honored to have had the opportunity to care for him.
