Music is such a comfort to us throughout our lives. In this video, hospice care worker Joshua Woodward walks into the room of a patient named Mary and begins to sing sweetly to her. He serenades her with the beautiful Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art”.
The touching moment was filmed at Austinburg Nursing & Rehab Center in Austinburg, Ohio, by Mary’s daughter-in-law, Marti Adkins Redmond, who revealed that Joshua has known Mary since he was 9 years old.
“Hospice workers are angels but this hospice aide is special,” Marti wrote. “Mary taught voice and piano in her day and this aide Joshua Woodard was one of her students as a kid. Special people hospice workers are!”
Mary has since passed, but her family will have this lovely memory of her in her last days.
