Hi Jessica,
I was at St. Joe's as a patient in the late 1980's and Madeline was born there in 1989. Looks like you were also there in l989. If I had known you were there, I would have said hello - lol. I remember the nuns being there, but not as nurses as they were in the earlier days. They all seemed very pleasant and calming to nervous patients.
I loved reading "The Last Christmas Card" - a wonderful story about your wonderful memory of a kind person.
We wish you, Mike, Tobi and Jake a very Merry Christmas.
Love, Chris, Carl and Madeline

Thanks for kind words about my post and for sharing a memory of your own. It always surprises me what a "small town" Phoenix can be. I love knowing you were all at St. Joe's for such a special event and I may have been there at the exact same time -- long before we ever met. A very Merry Christmas to you all, too. xoxo

Lovely story, Jessica. I can see why you wanted to make those cards last -- and why you simply MUST keep one for yourself!

Jessica - I am so pleased to hear that you had the same wonderful memories of Sr. Raymond. She was such a love and an inspiration. I was just at St Joseph's today where my husband is a patient. Brought back so many great memories of her and our great group of team members in our department. Always have thought it was the greatest and most talented people I have worked with. Love hearing about your lives and successes.
