Honorable mentions were also handed out to several individuals from the North Shore and Merrimack Valley including Harvey Calichman, of Salem; Lou Cimaglia, of Wilmington; Dave Dragan, of Marblehead; Tom Duggan, of Lawrence; Normand Giguere, of Lowell; Jim Graffum, of Ipswich; Peter Gwinn, of Wenham; Connie Hellwig and Kevin Hunt, of Newburyport; Donald Jarvis, of Newbury; Peg LaScola, of Wilmington; Roger Leger, of Salem; Susan Magner, of North Reading; Vinnie Simeone, of Woburn; and David Soucy, of Dracut.
These individuals were nominated by members of the community for their commitment to improving the lives of veterans. As a Level Four Partner of the We Honor Veterans program, Care Dimensions has joined together with the U.S. Department of the Veterans’ Affairs and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization to empower hospice professionals to meet the needs of dying veterans. The program teaches respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement — to comfort patients with a history of military service and possibly physical or psychological trauma.
