My heart go's out to Eileen's family. Eileen was a wonderful person as well as a great nurse I work with her at the old Cary and the new Cary she was caring and kind to her patients as well as her coworkers.
She was a true diamond in the County. Her big smile would brighten every day at work. Keep on smiling Eileen.
