I just learned of Connie's passing from Monday's Keene Sentinel. I remembered her from working together at Westwood some 25 years ago when I was first starting my nursing career. I found it remarkable that she was still doing so, well after the time when those in most other careers would have retired. But then that's what's so noteworthy about the profession, one never really leaves it. I have been saying for some time that, There's no such thing as a "retired" nurse. Indeed, she exemplified that and I appreciated working with her. Condolences on your loss.
