CandleWe met in nursing school, great memories of working together in the ER for many years. Had fun times together. I remember when she found out she was pregnant with Kyle. Moving away I missed seeing her and her family . I will miss her Christmas letter. I am glad I could count her as a friend. God be with Tom and his family. I know she is in heaven.

CandleI saw Linda about a week & a half ago. She was my nurse during a procedure. She was so happy & so calming. She was a proud lady catching me up on her family and asking about mine. She loved her family very much & it showed. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
