Candace Cowger and Rikki Smith, coronary intensive care unit, Michael Richards (not pictured), transport and Sabrina Sparks, radiology worked together to help a grieving family say goodbye to a loved-one.

Shortly after a patient passed-away and the patient's son arrived from out of state and wanted to see his mother.

Unsure at first of how to handle the situation, Cowger was persistent making phone calls to find out what to do and made the necessary arrangements.

They then escorted the family to where the patient's body was being held.

The family was very appreciative of Richards and Sparks for taking the time to make the patient presentable. Smith and Sparks stayed with the family and offered comfort and reassurance during their viewing.
