I'm a nursing student at Wayland Baptist University, and I met Mrs. Flores when we started our clinical rotations at Autumn Winds. I loved sitting and talking to her and listening to her wonderful stories. Listening to her play the piano and the look on her face while she played was priceless. She did express to me several times that she really missed her husband, and that's one of the things that helps get through this...she's reunited with the love of her life and is no longer suffering. I will forever cherish the connection I made with her. In the short time I spent with her, she made a huge impression on me and I will never forget her. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
