You helped me get through Nursing School. You always left me the best and most encouraging messages in purple folders. Loved hanging out with you on South Street and the Quad. We lost touch but you never were out of my heart. Love you always. Condolences to those who also loved and will miss you.

Although it is impossible to see beyond your pain, may we look back to good memories to comfort and help us today. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family during this difficult time. While we remain saddened by your loss, let us celebrate the life of Mando.
