A treasure to our Eleven Mile RD went to heaven.Fern was a wonderful lady. I remember her abundance of patients when we were kids at choir or Christmas programs.I want to grow up to be just like her. I think in many ways she taught the patients.Because of her I also learnt to give back to the community.Rest in Heaven Fern
