Even though I only had the pleasure of working with you for a short time you were one of the most kind hearted & compassionate nurses that I’ve ever worked with. You had an amazing spirit and your words and wisdom not only impacted myself but I’m sure everyone who knew you. May your family find comfort in knowing how much you were admired and truly appreciated. I will miss our talks and your genuine positive words my friend.

Your time on earth was far too brief. As an RN you gave exceptional care to your patients. As a co-worker you were always willing to help out. In quiet times at work you shared stories of your three children. It was obvious that they were the joys of your life. Although our friendship was cut short by your passing, I will remember you by your beautiful smile. An angel was added to heaven the day you were called home.
