I worked with Diane for several years as staff nurse on Birch Wing at Lifecare. She was the best work partner I ever had. I loved to work with her. She was such an excellent and caring nurse. We worked so well together. She was a good friend to me. I haven't seen her since I retired and she left Lifecare. We always felt like we could talk with each other when we were troubled. Love you, Dear Diane.
