Over the weekend I got the news that one of my coworkers from my old job passed away. To say that I am heartbroken about her death, and the circumstances around it, is an understatement. She was so young, beautiful, caring, beyond nice, and she was one of the best social workers I’ve had the chance of working with in my short nursing career. Her kind temperament benefited countless patients, many of whom didn’t have friends or family members who cared about them as much as she did. I can’t process the fact that she’s really gone–I’ve spent the time since I found out in a haze. I am still in shock, but I can only say that I desperately hope with every fiber of my being that she has now found the peace that so eluded her here on Earth. Rest in peace, beautiful girl.
