    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.
