May it bring you gentle comfort to know that others care,
May it help you to remember that friends are always there.
May the love and strength of family help you face tomorrow,
And with time, may quiet memories

My sympathies to the family of "Miss Amitrano". I was one of her students at RIH School of Nursing and can still remember her as my instructor on 9A when she practically had to hold me up when one of my first patients had a Cardiac Arrest. She remembered too. RIP
