I was so saddened to hear of Susan's death. I worked for and with Susan when she was nurse manager on the 3rd South Surgical floor. We worked the 3-11 shift and became good friends...I visited her home in Willard where she taught me to make "Greek Spaghetti." It is still a family favorite at our house. I remember vividly when she had "J.R. - you were the light of her life,
She went to home care and I went on to manage the child life program on Pediatrics at McKay...but enjoyed reminiscing about the good old days whenever we saw each other...she was my nurse at the surgical center not that long ago and I knew I was in good hands when I saw her. J.R., I'm sure you know how smart she was...how dedicated she was and how much she loved nursing....
My biggest regret was that the last time we saw each other we talked about the fact that because she had moved close to me in South Ogden we could now get together and "do lunch." I'm sorry to say it didn't happen...
You have a great mom,grandmother, daughter and sister...please know that she was loved and respected.
