I couldn't let this post slide since I suck at blogging.
(see previous post)

My brother Kim and I planned a retirement party for my mom on July 26, 2011.
The party was just an open house. There was alot of yummy food which consisted of grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, salads, chips, and cookies.
We were really happy that alot of moms family,  friends and co-workers came out to support her and enjoy themselves that night.
We both thought that she deserved this party because she truly worked so hard over the years, especially the last few years at the Internal Medicine Clinic.
I'm quite sure she loved being a nurse, she is the most kindest, loving person you could meet and patients would ask if she was working that day just so they could get her to take care of them. :)
 I may be biased, but she is the greatest nurse ever!!

I Love you Mom!!  :)
