I can’t believe this..I remember taking HPS together and seeing you at the nursing home. You never changed always polite. You will definitely be missed your sweet calm spirit always soothe your patients and everyone u came in contact with. I’m praying for your son and family. May your body be at peace and your sweet soul be with Jesus. Definitely lost a Jewel but God gained an angel. 😢😇

We hung out a few times, as Facebook friends , smiles keep us sharing memories of our life 30 years after graduation, but the most fun we shared was when we took this senior pic for the yearbook. Rest easy Classmate , #thequietclubof1985MHS.
