    Sending love to all who cared about her. A loss for sure. As a new nurse, she kept me along and as I grew – she still kept me in line. I love her for that and so much more. Her friendship has meant a lot. Her special cakes, her handmade GORGEOUS cards and laugh always brightened a day. I hope she is on a cruise eating sunflower seeds 😉
