One of my favorite moments with Dr. Kiernan was when I was working on 3E. He told me how that a family member came up and he was there (being the good secretary at that moment) and he introduced himself "Hi, I'm Dr. Kiernan, can I help you." and the family said..."Oh, are you a nurse here?" we both thought that was pretty funny and from that point on...He was Dr. Kiernan, RN. There are many other stories that he would tell and his kindness and his love for his wife...and it was really special if you ever saw him talk about her. Even though I moved to Oregon a number of years ago, I have still talked about him and some of his funny stories. There are just some people in life that stick with you and make an impact. Dr. Kiernan is one of those people that definately made an impact and I will forever appreciate his kind way in which he talked to you and how he knew everyone. What a terrible loss for his family, friends, the medical community and the community in which he lived. My heartfelt wishes go out to his loved ones and may his memories and legacy comfort you in the days to come.
