    I was Marilee’s nurse for her injections for the past few years at the Cancer Center in Greenville. I really enjoyed her positive attitude and smiling face, even when things weren’t going her way. Robin, I am inspired by your devotion to Marilee, and hope I can be as giving, caring and sacrificial as you were to Marilee. Please stop and see me some Tuesday or Wednesday. :) I will miss Marilee, and am glad to know I will see her again in Heaven someday, thanks to what Jesus did on the Cross for us. Love, Sue Main, RN
