Former Marine and Navy Seal Finds Comfort in Hospice Care
JoAnn Aguirre and her partner Duke Ogden were together for 20 years, up until his death at Pohai Malama. Duke, a former Marine and Navy SEAL, and JoAnn were on a trip to Oregon last year when he had a medical event that required an ER visit. He was advised to see his medical care provider upon return to Hilo. JoAnn describes the experience of those last months with Duke.
