    So sorry. I noticed there had been no postings for a while, but it never entered my mind that the problem was so serious. She will be missed sorely on this site, that much I know. God Bless friend.

    She was such a great support. She will be missed, but she lives on in all the students she supported on this site - including me.

    I had noticed that she hadn't posted in quite a while. She will be sorely missed here. Daytonite had a lot of experience to draw from and even though I didn't always agree with her viewpoint, she had my respect because she put her money where her mouth was, always. Her contribution to nursing was immeasurable.

    i cried out when i read this.

    more than a teacher, more than an advocate, more than an outstanding nurse...
    daytonite inspired all of us, and taught us that one's love of nursing and determination to succeed, would only result in all of us, aspiring to and maintaing the highest standards of care for our pts.
    she gave us so very much, and we've all become richer because of her.

    daytonite, you will be profoundly missed.
    may your legacy live eternally.

    I will truly miss daytonite. She was one of the most smartest nurse on this site and was very helpful to me when I was a student.
    I remember posting threads starting with Help!- and she was always one of the first to reply.
    I also thought that she never slept because she would help us students out any time of the day.
    Im going to miss her sooooo much, and I send my prayers of comfort to her family.
