I spend a lot of time with Marion over the past week, just sitting at her bedside and talking to her when I had a couple moments free between caring for other patients. What a sweet sweet woman! She told me about a pet boxer she used to have, and a pet raccoon too! She spoke fondly of her husband and how much she missed him, and mentioned her children often and how she hopes they know how very much she loves them. She worried she didn't tell them enough! She was always smiling when she spoke and worrying about everyone else, I imagine she's always been like that. My thoughts are with her family as they cope with the loss of a wonderful woman. She loves you all so much
