Hospice Savannah, Inc. recently had the honor and privilege of serving a remarkable young soldier – Staff Sergeant Jermaine Seabrook of Fort Stewart’s Warrior Transition Battalion’s Bravo Company. For six months Jermaine was cared for both in his home and at Hospice House where he died peacefully on September 2nd.

Jermaine’s Battalion is a medical unit that transitions wounded soldiers to veteran status or back to active duty. He was an exemplary soldier chosen to carry the Company colors which he proudly displayed in his room at Hospice House. Last week his widow Sylvilla, his Captain, Matt Smith, and many friends and family members returned to express their thanks to the hospice’s staff and volunteers.

Jermaine’s wife Sylvilla gave Hospice Savannah’s President and CEO Debra Anthony Larson a generous check as a token of her appreciation, and Cpt. Smith presented her with 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 outside of Room 6 at Hospice House in Jermaine’s memory.
