Hucl and I were married in l 952; her entire life was dedicatc:s, there were few doctors and nurses at rhe hospital. Trained nurscs at thaJ 1 ime were performing som e of rhc duties that the doctors are doing today. Many Be.hasruans take for granted and do not recognize and appreciate I.he sacrifices that nurses are making in Biving health care to tbe public A person must love and care for the sick in order to become a nurse Ir takes special people to become nurses school teachers and police officers. ln 1962. f-lcr Majesty Queen Elizabeth II recognized Hazed awarding her with the Ccnitica1e of Honour for services she rendered to 1he Bahamian people I am pleased thal the Bahamas Nurses Association remembers her as one of the rra.ilblazers in nursing I extend my congTatula1ions to all nurses throughout this Common w ealth on 1he 103rd ye8J Anniversary.

Your words of hope and encouragement and the administration of your gentle and caring hands and continue to administer healing and relief to so many. By your presence, and by your sweet and gentle spirit, so many have been bJessed, and we want you to know that we are so proud of you. Many of the lives touched by you wi.11 never know nor understand the sacrifices you made through the years, but we were there, and we know, and we are most grateful to you Again, we your children congratulate you Mom, on this fine celebratory occasion which reflects upon and commemorates your service to God, Man and Country.
