Friend WISCONSIN DELLS , Wisconsin dear dear friend. You will be missed so much. You were a wonderful person who was always proud of her daughters and dearly lover her grandchildren. You were a pioneer for the durable medical equipment world. You always stood proud for your company and fought hard to keep the durable equipment rates and coverage fair in the state of Wisconsin. I was proud to work for her. Not only was she my boss, she was a best friend. I will miss having breakfast and taking walks with you. You were one of the strongest women I knew, dealing with all the struggles you had with your health. I hope you are at peace and all you pain is gone. Love you!
