I am so sorry to hear of Hattie's passing. I have fond memories of working with her when I first started out in my nursing carreer on 5A and 5Victoria. She manned the phones and ran the desk and kept everything running smoothy and efficiently. I have never forgotten her. My condolences to her family..

So sorry to hear of "Little Hattie's" passing. She was a kind lady and I have many happy memories of time spent at her home. Hattie was very patient with a Moose and a Lizard who laughed a lot. Love Elizabeth
