This message of heartfelt sympathy is from the dialysis nurse that admitted her to Davita dialysis at the beginning of her 3x/week treatments. I stayed with her through out the treatment in the admission process that first day due to her apprehension. I found out later how much that meant to her. Such a sweet and loving person, she reached out to the other patients in many tangible and intangible ways. There was a threesome of older ladies that had to sit near each other so they could visit and check on each other each treatment, it was sweet to witness. She was generous with her plants and I received some her glorious amaryllis bulbs and have sent her pictures each spring. I'll always refer to them as my Carolyn amaryllis because they perfectly reflect her beautiful nature. May God give your family peace knowing she fought the good fight and is now at rest with our Lord and Saviour, Sincerely, Janis Wenzel, RN-retired
