Dear Debbie and family,
I am so very sorry about your Mother.
She was one of the first to make me feel welcomed at CRMC. She was always so kind, patient and sweet. A real Christian inspiration and a true classy southern lady. I am praying for all of you.

Mrs. Sledge was a very caring and very good nurse. I could always count on her to take good care of our ICU patients.
