Condolences to the Family

It’s hard to convey how much this beautiful girl will be missed.  Hannah was a bright spot in everyone’s life; you couldn’t help but become a better person by just knowing her.  Being my daughter’s best friend for years, we dubbed each other with the nicknames of East Coast Daughter and West Coast Mama, a relationship I treasured.  A trip to Hawaii with us was energized by her spirit and spunk.  My heart and prayers go out to Hannah’s family from this heartbreaking and unfair loss.  The world has lost a true Angel, but Heaven has gained the best of the best with her presence.  Rest in Peace, West Coast Daughter.

I am so sorry for your loss of Hannah.  She was such a joy to work with.  Her laugh was so delightful.  She laughed easily, was always kind, always knew her patients and cared deeply.  I want to be more like Hannah!

Cannot believe that beautiful, life hugging Hannah has gone, we are all poorer for her passing. RIP generous, loving Hannah, and words don’t go deep enough to express how much love I want to shower Marcia, Mary and the rest of the family with.  When the tears runout, you will have the best memories of a wonderful human. Hang tough, you are strong enough to cope with this, God bless you all.

I met Hannah in the ER at LGH when she started there as a RN at such a young age. She was always bubbly and fun! She was never afraid to ask questions and learn. Her kind, free spirit will be missed! May God comfort you during this difficult time.

She was the sweetest, kindest, gentle soul. She lit the mood in any room with just her presence. She is brought up in every conversation we speak of and everything reminds us of her lovely soul. She will forever lie in our hearts.

She was a delight. Always cheerful. Always bubbly. Always asking questions. Such a joy to teach. One of those people who will never be forgotten and who will remain in my heart forever. May God’s love and the love of others bring you peace.

My sincere sympathies to Hannah’s family and friends. She was a wonderful co-worker and a friend to all. May your memories bring you comfort in the days and weeks ahead.

Hannah was the youngest person I had met who had become an RN (I believe by age 18?)  and that’s not all! She had an encyclopedic knowledge of many subjects, and the sweetest smile and laugh and was just an amazing person to be around. 
 
It was a blessing to get to know her. We loved to debate about the origin of whoopie pies and she even made the Maine version of them with me one time! I admit they were good with the marshmallow creme added to the filling!
 
Over the years we lost touch somewhat but we did correspond some about house hunting and she blessed our family with a great window unit air conditioner!
 
One of the last emails I sent her was about a position to work for Hospice. I had just started volunteering with them at Camp Chimaqua, a camp for kids who have had a loss. She was on the very short list of people I thought of when I read this email that started with this sentence:
 
“Do you know a caring and compassionate nurse that wants to make a difference by doing meaningful work in a caring and professional environment?”
 
I am so glad to know she was working there in recent years and KNOW she made a difference! She will be missed by so many in this world and may God comfort her family and friends.
