I don't know where to begin but I will try to be brief. My husband and I along with two of his sisters traveled to Alvin, TX the Monday before Christmas to visit his critically ill sister who had been battling lung cancer. We spent 7 nights at the hotel and were treated so wonderful by the staff. Taylor and all the other desk clerks and breakfast attendants asked each day how my husband's sister was doing and kept her and us in their prayers. One of the attendants baked us a delicious loaf of Hawaiian bread. This meant so much to us as we were always hurrying in and out to be with his sister. The Friday after Christmas my husband's sister lost her battle with cancer. That evening while we were out grabbing a bite to eat the attendant had the desk clerk leave a loaf of chocolate bread and some crocheted items in our room. We were so surprised to see the bread and the handmade gift. This was so thoughtful and lifted our spirits. Then the following day an even more tragic event occurred. One of my husband's other sisters hadn't been feeling well and we had to rush her to the ER. She had contracted the H1N1 flu virus and was admitted to an area hospital. The next day she was rushed to the ICU and put on a ventilator. She never recovered and passed away the following Saturday morning. We will never forget the kindness extended to us from everyone at the Holiday Inn Express in Alvin, TX in our time of sorrow.
