I'm so sorry to hear of Shorty's passing. Seeing that smiling face, though, made me smile! We worked together at White County Hospital many years ago when I was a new nurse and it was the most fun I had ever had at work. She was so sassy and so very sweet. Just a fabulous co-worker! What a wonderful, full of joy person she was. Rest well, old friend!

I just wanted to tell the family how sorry I am for your loss. I had the opportunity to meet Virginia last year. My daughter, Paige, was a CNA who took care of Virginia. They just loved each other so much and Virginia had asked to meet me. I am so glad I went to see her. We had a nice visit and she told me how much she loved Paige and that she took good care of her. I'm going to copy and paste what Paige posted on Facebook. I just wanted you all to know how much my daughter loved her. Long post ahead... Everyone that I worked with knew how much this lady meant to me. As soon as I started at Mulberry last summer I became very close with her. She was always teasing me, asking me to tell her stories about me getting ready for college and getting my own apartment, giving me advice when I would ask for it, and just being there to talk and laugh with. She would always tell me how proud she was of me, and would brag about how proud she was of me to other people. My favorite thing would be when I would get her body washes from Bath and body works, and she would smell the different scents, and tell me which ones were her favorite. When I wouldn’t be at work for a couple days she would always tease me and tell me that I should’ve been there because she missed me when I was gone. I would paint her nails weekly, and she loved that. I’m going to miss my “grandma” so much and I will always have love for this lady in my heart. I’m thankful I met her, and even more thankful for all the stories and lessons she would teach me. I hope heaven is filled with all the oreos, chocolate, and coffee for her🥺 I always get upset losing a resident, but this one hurts a little bit more than most.
