I will never forget, as a child I would lay on the couch with my head resting in her lap as she would run her fingers thru my hair. While doing this she would share stories or tell me fables. One of many great memories with her. Another great memory of her involves mud in my ear....

Tia Maria changed the course of my life. I really had no direction, career wise, until she took me under her wing and introduced me to nursing. She took me to work with her and showed me how she helped so many people. She taught me that it was important to be independent and she said nursing could help me achieve independence, while helping others. I didn't follow her advice right away, but her words and the memories of how she interacted with her patients remained with me. They were so grateful for the way she cared for them. I became a nurse, like Tia, and my daughter is an RN. She is continuing her education and is going to be a nurse practitioner...so, she indirectly added another caregiver to the world. She inspired me to do more with my life and has indirectly helped so many more people than the ones she directly cared for by sharing her life of nursing. She became a second mom to me and taught me valuable life lessons. We had some wonderful times and I will always cherish those memories. Love you Tia, always!❤
