Rachel and John

I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad she did not have to suffer long. I am also I cannot be there in person due to another commitment. You will be in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

We will miss her smile and laugh here at the Mayo La Crescent Clinic. She always had a smile on her face every time I saw her. I will miss her.
