1010 WINS — Grab your tissues.

A kindhearted nurse went above and beyond the call of duty to bring comfort to one of her patients who is dying of cancer.

Nurse Olivia Neufelder sat with Margaret Smith for hours as her anesthesia wore off.

Smith’s daughter, Megan, shared a touching and emotional video on Facebook of the nurse holding her mother’s hand and singing her a song.

“You never left her side by choice!” Smith wrote. “Words cannot describe the appreciation and love we feel for nurse Olivia who mom calls her angel! Your dedication to your patients is beyond any that I have seen, you truly are a beam of light and I cannot thank you enough for the compassion and care and love you shared for my mother. God bless you Olivia!”

Neufelder said her heart breaks thinking about losing Margaret.

“Knowing that she will be dancing in the heavens and singing with the angels helps me find peace during this somber time,” Neufelder said. “This experience has challenged me in many ways.”

The nurse hopes those who watch the video see what true compassion looks like and begin to practice it themselves.

“I pray this story helps people find comfort through a dark time they may be going through,” she told 1010 WINS.

    I can not begin to describe the LOVE I feel towards this woman.

    Seriously?!? An “elderly” woman? The woman who passed was only 63, not even old enough for social security. Is your headline writer a 12 year old who sees anyone over 35 as ancient? If this had been a 63 year old man, would you have called him elderly? Give a little more thought to your headlines people.

    For the life of me, I cannot imagine what compels people to record sensitive, private, and grievous events like this. This is egotistical, self-serving, and self-absorbed behaviors of nearly every millennial.

    PUT THE CELL PHONES DOWN, IDIOTS, and recognize a time to be private and dignified, for once.
