Marty, I just heard about your mom's passing. During our friendship as young kids in the neighborhood, she always made time to talk to me and get to know me. I also saw her a few times when she was working as a nurse and she recognized me right away after all the years. She was definitely a strong, beautiful person. I just wanted you and your family to know that I've always remembered her and you all. She will be missed. Jim (Butch) Floras

You will always have a special place in my heart...not only as a wonderful mom to Noreen but as my labor nurse for 2 out if 3 of our children. You provided me with a reassurance that everything was going to be ok...and it always was. You left an amazing mark on this world....and it is better because you were part of it.

We may have lost touch but never in thought. Our many years at Memorial Hospital in the OB department made work fun. We became a family as we loved and supported each other and the people we served. I still Remember Jeffrey calling you, even on your day off when you were tucked in bed. Peace be yours in a special way that can never be equaled in our earthly life. Just make God laugh and bake your delicious apple coffee cake for Him. My special thoughts and prayers go to Hank and the kids.

Will always remember her infectious laugh. The many overnights during the Mountie years with her and the Hankster. A truly remarkable lady. She took care of my son, a preemie, when he was born. Will always be remembered with a smile. She will be missed. Am deeply sorry for your loss. Love your Noreen. Prayers and hugs.
