I don’t know if any of you will remember me, but I worked on Somerset with Kass since she came back to us. Seeing this floored me and I am truly heartbroken. I’m so sorry for your loss! Kass was a wonderful lady, even though I didn’t get a chance to know her as you did. I will always hold a special place in my heart for her. She was so blessed to have a devoted and loving family. Even on a bad day we were able to smile and laugh with each other! I always called her trouble and she would get a kick out of it. It will not be the same at the home without her and I am going to miss seeing her beautiful face, tucking her in and telling her to get her beauty rest and I’ll see her tomorrow. No one warns you about this part of our job and it never gets easier! God bless all of you and your family is in my prayers.
