To Friends & Family of Tina,
To me Tina was my nurse preceptor as a nurse extern and graduate nurse orientee on 3SA /Telemetry at Franklin Square. She nurtured me, mentored me, was a shoulder to cry on, and guided me through the first few years of my nursing career. She was part of my work family from 2005 to 2011. She was one of my work mothers as a baby nurse when I was grieving and struggling with ending my relationship with my alcoholic/addict mother and this destructive family disease for my own health reasons. She often spoke of her husband Nick, family, and her property in PA. I can still hear her laugh that brightened the most stressful days on our unit as nurses. She taught me how to speak to patients, families, physician assistants, and physicians with humor, compassion, respect, and professionalism in my tone, words, and intentions. Her support at work helped me find my Al-Anon family. She will always be in my heart and memories. I am glad she is at peace and hope she has found serenity with the Lord and dwells in his house forever.
