Beth, I have fond memories of your mother during the years I worked with her at MBMHI .Later when I brought students to the Bend we would often catch up. She was a really lovely person who, I am sure, will be greatly missed by all. My sympathy to you and your family.

My condolences to the family. I met Daisy when I worked at Moccasin Bend Hospital in the 70's. She was such a wonderful lady and one of my favorite people. May God comfort and strengthen you during this difficult time.
