    Many times, Joyce and I found ourselves in the same thread trying to help the same student with the same problem -- and more often than not, we had completely different viewpoints.

    What Joyce had, of course, was decades more experience, seventeen web links and citations from four leading nursing texts to go with each answer. When Daytonite said something, she could defend it. I know without a single doubt that she made me a better nurse.

    My thoughts and feelings are with her family and friends.

    What a magnificent person!! She was always willing to help. As a new nursing student, I needed it often, and even while sick she would reply to my PMs.

    She will be missed!!!

    She will be truly missed. It's rare for me to feel honestly thankful for a member of an online community, but for her, I was. She was a huge blessing to this board and I will miss that.
