I met Suzanne when she became a patient in our cardiac rehab program at HDH. She was such a delight to work with. She always had a smile and made many friends there. She shared her creative talents with staff and co-rehabers I know she will be missed by many. Prayers to all of her family during this difficult time.
I met Ms. Bracken when she came to Mary Munford. She was a good person to go to if you wanted a laugh. Her second graders enjoyed her class and she prepared them well to move on to 3rd grade.
