Memories Timeline


  1. My heart and prayers goes out to the Rodriguez family on this extremely hard time. As one of Mrs. Rodriguez nurses at Methodist I can say she was a beautiful person inside and out. She adored her kids, her grand babies, her family and her loving husband who never left her side for no more then a day. My heart aches knowing I attempeted to see her Thursday night to share beautiful news with her, going to her new location Friday morning and then finding out she’s gone…I will cherish every moment I shared with her from doing her hair, caring for her, giving her company or all the times she would say “just close the door mija so they don’t look for you, take a break!” I’ll see you Tuesday morning beautiful, may you rest in peace and watch over us from above.
