Without question the best - and most challenging -nursing instructor I had .Critical thinking. It's been a long time Sue. I loved fast pitched softball, trips to Bayfield enjoying the peace , quiet, rides along the shore looking for birds and driftwood .You so enjoyed Earl's stories . I'm happy knowing you and Pat stayed long time friends . It's hard to believe you're gone. I know though that you'll make the most of your onward experience..
