Caption: Ray Goodman, 37, drew a picture for his dad, J.T. Goodman, each day he survived on a ventilator, suffering with a respiratory infection he acquired after a deadly tornado devastated his hometown of Joplin a year ago. The pictures came to cover the wall of his hospital room at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, where he was transferrred. The drawings helped Ray Goodman say good-bye; and their impact on nurses and doctors was so great, the staff implemented a new program asking all patients to tell their stories.
