  1. I loved him soo very much, I miss him terribly and I still cannot believe this has happened. I wasn’t notified of him being in the hospital until the next day. When he died, NOONE in his family was notified. The hospital refused to give any information. A whole day passed before we were notified of his death. The hospital dcomment_IDn’t even allow us to be with him in his last moments just because he was under custody. That was not only injust and cold-hearted but it was just plain wrong. They knew he wasn’t going to make it but yet they still dcomment_IDn’t allow him to atleast go in peace knowing his loved ones were there.
