Long ago, I started working as private nurse with a little girl not yet 5 years old. She had many, many medical problems. Through some great fortune, I worked with that child for 9 years, almost helping her parents to raise her. She was a joy and challenge all rolled into one little Bean. She had a wicked and impish sense of humor and ability to communicate despite her lack of speech. As the years advanced and my friendship with her mom grew, my relationship with Beany changed too. She began to spend the occasional respite weekend with my family and my daughters grew to regard her as their little sister. She brought joy to all of us and leaves us with a wealth of stories. This time has been a time of "do you remember" for my family and we all feel a deep sadness that she has left us. Beans was a real gift, despite all her challenges, to those privileged to know her. Deepest sympathy to Sue, Gary and Mickey.
