The Linton family would like to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Bruce Campbell of St. Mary's Hospital Center, for his compassionate care of Allan, who maintained all along that he wasn't sick,and the staff of 6 North of St. Mary's Hospital, who helped the family come to terms with Allan's diagnosis.
Allan's last 9 months were spent at the Sunrise Residence in D.D.O., where he was surrounded by caregivers who navigated the Linton stubborn streak with patience, humour, and affection. A heartfelt thank you to Dr. D'Ignazio at Sunrise for his patience & understanding.
Donations in Allan's memory may be made to St. Mary's Hospital Oncology Department or to a charity of your choice.
