Richard. Sorry to hear of your mothers passing. She was a lovely lady. Even though she lived to a great old age, it don’t make it any easier. A mothers love is a blessing. Please accept my condolences.

Nita and I were Class of 1948 Grace Hospital nursing graduates. We had gone through three years of the many ups and downs of nursing school together, always having each others back, but were full of pride of being Grace graduates. There are so many happy memories I have of our lifetime friendship that I will carry with me, forevermore. Richard please accept our condolences on your Mother’s passing.

So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I remember so many nice times when I was at your home and your mom was always kind to me. I know from experience it is hard to lose your mom, but remember all she did for your family and it makes it easier to go on.

I remember Juanita a few years back at Grace Hospital School of Nursing functions, and also Mrs. Mullins (Alma). Two wonderful people. My sincere sympathy to the family.
