Walter Mencken 4 p.m., May 3
This photo was taken in front of Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla. My family and I recently spent 9 days at this hospital while my father underwent heart valve replacement surgery and received three cardiac by-passes. The surgeons and nurses at Scripps are extraordinary. The service and skill provided to us by the staff at Scripps Hospital was above and beyond anything we could have expected and they should all be commended. I want to thank each and every one of them for their hard work and the dedication and caring attitude that was provided to me and my family during this difficult time. Thanks to everyone at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, especially to the nurses on the 6th floor!
