Glenda, Melanie and Family, I just wanted to thank you for giving me the honor and opportunity of taking care of your Aunt Lois the last few months of her life. She was a wonderful and sweet lady and will be greatly missed. She definitely has earned her spot in Heaven. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

Mrs. B was the school nurse before me at Monroe Central.  She was very caring and interesting all the time I knew her.  Thank you for caring for your aunt.  She was a true blessing to Monroe Central.  I think of her and her unique ways often.  She helped me to be a better school nurse.
