To all of Minnie's family,
Minnie was a long time good friend of my mom, Barbara Bloomberg. They worked together for many years in Pediatrics at Danbury Hospital. (Carol Bochnia taught my brother and I to swim when we were young.) I have always remembered Minnie and Ed as the sweetest couple. She was such a kind person. Some time ago my mom and Minnie lost touch after Carol had passed and my mom wondered if she had moved or passed away also. Sadly, my mom passed away two weeks before Minnie on April 2, 2014. I wish that they had had the opportunity to reconnect. I know that they are both together in that special part of heaven just for nurses, and I am sure that my mom is so happy to see Minnie again!
