Bill, I have just learned of your mom's passing. She was a class act. my mentor not just in nursing, but life in general. She will forever have a special place in my heart. I could write a book of stories of her impact on others, and still it would not do her justice. One thing for sure, her most accomplished feat was YOU! She loved you beyond words and was so very proud of you from grade school on. Then you blessed her with a wonderful wife and children! Her life was complete. You inherited her ambition, her work ethic, but most of all her heart. You are her legacy! Please accept my sincere sympathy,
Diane Cheney
