Barb, I’m very sorry for your loss. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I did not know your Mom well, not like many of the nurses but I did have the privilege of caring for her a few times. I kept dreaming of her dancing and then I got the news of your Momma. She was very proud of YOU Barb! May you find strength in her beautiful memories. GOD bless
