We tend to take for granted the dai- ly excellence of our experienced nur- sing assistants and we justify it by simply saying we ext)ect no less.

Mr. Ily Bratina was honored for well physically. Your quiet demeanor serves you not at all for we often look past you and fail to recognize direct and meaningful contribution that you make to our facility.

Your reward, therefore, is in this knowledge and you should feel well knowing that their lives are enriched by your dedicated efforts in their interests.
