Hospice Savannah Inc. recently served a young soldier, Staff Sgt. Jermaine Seabrook of the Warrior Transition Battalion’s Bravo Company on Fort Stewart. For six months, Seabrook was cared for in his home and at Hospice House, where he died Sept. 2.
Seabrook’s battalion is a medical unit that transitions wounded soldiers to veteran status or back to active duty. He was chosen to carry the company colors, which he proudly displayed in his room at Hospice House.
In November, his widow, Sylvilla Seabrook; his captain, Matt Smith; and many friends and family members returned to express their thanks to the hospice’s staff and volunteers.
Sylvilla Seabrook gave Hospice Savannah president and CEO Debra Anthony Larson a generous check as a token of her appreciation, and Smith gave her a framed certificate signed by Battalion Commander William C. Reitemeyer.
It thanks her organization “for exceptional service, dedication and support of our soldier. … Your professionalism and compassion enabled him to endure his final weeks with grace and in comfort, surrounded by loving family, friends and strangers alike.”
The framed certificate will be hung in Seabrook’s memory outside of room six at Hospice House.
