Sooo excited to be going to the museum on her birthday in 2020! This lady was so transformational - her influence on my life and the life of others is such a legacy of love.
We had a super visit yesterday. Thank you. 😁

Vintage photos of Charity Hospital in New Orleans. Second largest public hospital in US, after Cook County in Chicago. They had a Diploma school of nursing. I graduated in the last Diploma class. Flo would have been proud of the program and graduates.
