    The nursing proffession has suffered a great loss. I went to Nursing school with this girl. I watched her struggle through and overcome many obstacles that were put in her path. She was able to perservere where many others would have given up. She earned the title of nurse and those who had the opprotunity to be cared for her were lucky, indeed. I can't imagine all the lives that she touched in her six years as a nurse. It's a great tragedy that her career was cut short. So sad for the people she leaves behind.
