  1. Cee was my mentor and fellow nurse.
    I admired and loved her dearly.
    Her smile, brilliance, warm heart and humor will never be forgotten.

  2. Cee was my mentor, my boss at UIC, and most importantly my friend. I am far from being alone in that capacity as she never failed to share her vast knowledge and experiences to others.. She is greatly missed.
