That is a wonderful story! Some might scoff at whether the nurse deserves it or not. I know if I had that much money to give away I would rather give it away to a good person that I knew personally instead of donating it to some large, vague organization where any number of hands can potentially pilfer the $ or have it eaten up by administrative costs/fees.
Ms. Clark is giving lots of money to charity too. Ms Clark also paid the nurse an high salary and bonuses when she was alive.
I do believe that a good nurse should be rewarded, but having a patient pay for trips, cars, houses, etc is not professional in my opinion. According to another story, the nurse would complain and Ms Clark would assist the nurse. As a professional the nurse should have not been complaining to a patient she was taking care of.
It sounds like Ms Clark and her nurse struck up quite a friendship. I usually do not think friendship appropriate between my patients and myself. However, we are talking about a recluse who probably did not trust many people out there and who knew most people were after her money. I am glad she found someone she could trust for 20 years. God bless.
