Hi Friends and Family,
In Loving Memory of our friend Judy Thamm, we are partnering with the Visiting Nurse Service & Hospice of Suffolk's 18th Annual Run for the Health of It to raise money for their bereavement programs and Hospice House.
Judy will always be remembered for her smile, inspiration, dedication, and incredible talents. Not only was Judy a co-founder of Northport Cat Rescue but she was an active participant right up until the time she took ill. Judy promoted and attended all of our fund-raising events, yard sales, and social gatherings, and assisted Joe in maintaining a schedule of care for the animals. She was very proud to be involved with Northport Cat Rescue and she will be sorely missed by the NCRA family.
During the last weeks of her life, Judy frequently spoke of how grateful she was to be surrounded by loving family and friends. She was also very grateful for all the nurses and aides from the Visiting Nurse that cared for her. Simple things we all take for granted in our daily lives, even taking a bath, become the most challenging when we fall ill. Judy would say, speaking of the Visiting Nurse staff, "I cannot believe how nice she was. So gentle. She sang to me while she bathed me, can you believe that?.. To be so kind and gentle to someone you don't even know.. I'm so thankful..."
All of us know a loved one who has been in this situation. When someone we love is in need of hospice care, we all suffer the same roller coaster of emotions; helplessness and sadness. it is small stuff that gives us all tiny moments of comfort. We are grateful to the Visiting Nurse and its wonderful staff for being there for Judy and we, as Northport Cat Rescue Association would like to extend a helping hand to them so they may always continue providing this most valuable service for others in the future.
