Thank you for not only being my nurse but for being a friend during an uncomfortable time. Everything you did is truly appreciated.

For that, I must send a big thank you.

I have had bad experiences in the past, but you have gone above and beyond your call of duty to make this little old lady feel comfortable and loved. May God bless you.

Thank you, Nurse Rogers, not only for your professionalism but for your ability to make me feel as if I was a priority and not just another patient. Thank you for nursing me back to health.
