    Cienwen, So sorry to hear about your mom. I started working for her when I was 17. She was a great lady. Darlene wanted me to give you her condolences as well. Every weekend I worked I would always make sure to talk to her and when I asked her how she was she always said she was, “Fat and sassy”. I will miss her. Take care.

    I had the good fortune to work with Janet when she was at Greenville Hospital. She was kind and caring to her patients and just a sweetheart to work with. You were so lucky to have such a wonderful person in your life.
