    Kenny and family- I am so sorry to see that your mom passed—- she was so sweet, funny and a great friend during nursing school—- you may not remember me coming up to your house at Reed and study. We would be sitting there thinking and talking about the next big test and if we knew enough to pass it. Even though she was old enough to be my mom —- you wouldn’t know it— our clinical group had so much fun and your mom was supportive of all us young ones—-we had Sister Angela Marie as one of our clinical instructors and never knew what she would do next. I remember Sister took us to the old Evansville state hospital for clinical in psych and during the orientation Sister fell asleep and was snoring. This was so funny and when I get to laughing it is terrible stopping it and I remember having “belly laughing “ and your mom kept saying “buster you are going to get thrown out of the nursing program” and it was all I could do to stop laughing. She had a really good laugh when I was called into the Dean Claudia Watson office to get scolded because my boxer briefs had designs on them that you could see through my white uniform pants. Your mom laughed and laughed and on the next few clinical rotations your mom would ask “buster do you have white undies on and I told i her I just wouldn’t wear and see what Dr Watson about that! I was only 19 and stupid but you mom got so tickled when I said nobody was going to tell me what kind of underwear I was going to wear and I can see your mom laughing and laughing but also was protected of me and said I was going to be a good nurse but I better not mess with Dr Watson— know your mom was a great friend, kind friend and I’ll remember all the good times — it’s hard to believe we were RNs for 40 years last May! Bless your family and know many people loved your mom! Buster Carter—- Bill from St Mary’s!

    This is Lisa Rascoe Davis from Owensboro. So sorry to learn of your mom’s passing. Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I think back fondly of spending the night at your house and all the fun we used to have. Your parents were the greatest. I so admired your mom going back to school to become a nurse when she did. I know you’ll miss her very much.
