I am so saddened by the loss of this amazing woman. She crossed the paths of many through the years and always will be remembered with a warm spot in their heart and a smile. May God bless the family with only good memories when she comes to mind. I will see her in Heaven in the company of all the RNs she worked with and mentored. Rest in peace my friend.
