Dear family, I am so sorry to read about the loss of a great nurse and nursing advocate!
I am forever to Dr. Johnson for her help with my graduate studies. She was interviewed for a paper I wrote for a graduate class at the University at Albany.
I enjoyed seeing both Dr. Johnsons at the local nurse's association meetings.
I wondered if the Johnson's were still in the Albany area. Glad she had such good care in Maryland. My sympathy!
