A nurse's story: Goodwin retires
A table in the window with a bouquet of bright yellow and purple flowers told Mary Goodwin's story. A card, enclosed in a sterilizing pouch, read, "We miss you already, but you deserve the best. Love you." Perched on top of the brightly colored flowers sat a small replica of a nurse's hat made of crisp white paper.
"I was the last one at the clinic to give up my cap," Goodwin recalled. "It was a part of my uniform every day for many years. I was very proud to wear it."
