Sincere sympathy in your loss of Nessie. She was one of my nursing instructors, and one of the best. She was tough, but always wanted us to succeed. She had confidence in us, more than we did in ourselves. Her stories were great teaching tools. I will be forever grateful for having had her as an instructor. Jan Bengle Ruidl
