So sorry for your loss. She was such a great person and a compassionate nurse. She took care of me when I had my ileostomy surgery back in 1984; taught me how to take care of it; how to change my appliance - not to be afraid or embarrassed; how to go on living normally. She was always there to answer my questions and concerns. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of your family. Sincerely, Sissy and Larry

I so loved your mom. She was always so extremely kind to me at the hospital in my early years and so enjoyed her friendship from that point on. Love your family and am praying for you during this time.
