I'm glad to hear you pulled through, & I thank you for your kind words.

I too, am humbled by her willingness to constantly help others,even though she had a heart condition.She suffered a massive heart attack at 72 years of age,while volunteering as a nurse at a local hospital.

If in the end,I can think of myself as half the person she was,then I will have truly accomplished something in this life.

Steve, there's a hero around every corner. I am humbled almost daily by others. Stay strong my friend.

Thank you so much. I'm smiling, as it's how I remember her.
