For the last two years, I have had the privilege of spending time with Sr. Anne at Mary Health of the Sick in Newbury Park.

I will miss the conversations we shared about everything from our families to her home in Northern Ireland to her incredible faith in God. Her witty stories were always told with a little twinkle in the eye that made me wish I had known her when she was a girl or I had been lucky enough to have her as a teacher.

Although I will miss her, I feel very blessed to have had these two years getting to know her. She was, and will remain, an inspiration to me.
