We worked together for many years at Martin Luther King Hospital and you left there and started working with my mother Velma Campbell at Swope Ridge Nursing Home. You were kind , funny, and giving. Loved your family. Loved Jehovah. We will meet again. Rest my friend.

I will certainly miss Sister Vaughn. Such a loving and fun loving sister. Can still hear her infectious laugh. Just a little while before Jehovah wakes her up. We are sooo close to the new world. Brenda you and your family are in my prayers. Sending love and hugs.
