Fondly remembering Dr. Garza 's sweet and kind guidance. I am sad about her loss and pray for the Lord's comfort for the family. She was a true nurse visionary and inspired me with her compassion and love for people. Right now, you see our Savior's beautiful face and walk the pearly streets of heaven. Thank you, Dr. Garza. I will miss you.
