Nez ,was a great Lady she taught how to be a strong Black woman when times were tough for me it was quite a while since we saw each other then one day in Price Chopper we met and it was better then old times . She one of the best CNA to ever walk this earth as I said she taught me a lot and was always able to count on her for what ever you needed from her as she use to say " if I got it you can get it " To the family stay strong through this trying time remember what she taught us .
