To The Family Of Mrs. Hopkins From Our Deepest Sympathy from the Staff at Citrus Memorial Home Health Agency

May 20, 2014

I recently started working at Arbor Trail. A co worker mentioned the passing of a nurse that used to work there. I had no idea that it was Sherrie. I had the privilage of working with her at Citrus Memorial years ago. Kept in touch with her for a while. I am so very saddened by this. She will forever be in my memory for the wonderful person that she was. Learned alot from her when I was a CNA before nursing school. FLY HIGH SHER....LOVE SHANNON
