Ken & Marilyn's Story

Married couples vow to stay together until “death do us part.” But when one of them is at a healthcare facility, they have to sleep apart.  Thanks to the efforts of two devoted wives - Barb Rhame and Marilyn Cash Gooding who lost their husbands - Bob and Ken, respectively - that situation is beginning to change at Mercy with the addition of some double hospital beds.

Here you can read the moving story of Ken and Marilyn, written by Marilyn, to how it moved her to help provide comfort for future Hospice House patients.
