    I loved her so much and was devastated to hear of her passing while I'm in quarantine. When I would go in to do patient care with her, she never failed to make me laugh or smile. I would always say, "I love you Mary Watson." And she would Always reply, "I know. I love you too." I will miss her greatly.
