Dear Balloy Family
It has been many years since your mother and I worked together at Methodist Hospital Recovery. She was my assistant head nurse. She was a joy to work with. I loved her compassion for the patient and her ever present since of humor. We tangled once or twice possibly due to my lack of maturity, but she was a woman that left a positive impression with me that I carried with me even today.
May her soul Rest In Peace, and all her good works continue in heaven.

Dan, I know you don't remember me, but we went to RCC together a couple hundred years ago. I'm sorry you lost your mother. It sounds like she was a really neat person. I hope you have wonderful memories of her.
