Honoring Elizabeth: The Never Alone Project - II

On today's edition of Family Talk, Steve Reiter continues to share the heartbreaking story of his wife, Elizabeth, who died alone in her hospital room during the pandemic. Thanks to Steve's organization, ten states are moving toward a reasonable accommodation for a loved one to be allowed in the room around the clock through Never Die Alone bills.
