    I know I was your primary nurse for only about a year, but our friendship made it seem like we had known each other forever. My heart aches and I still cry for you, but I am sure you are resting peacefully where ever you are and, you won't have to worry about pills and injections anymore. I miss you Jo.

    I plan to see you again.
