    Dear Emily,
    When we look at your mother’s life I like to remember her acts of kindness. She was there for friends in need . Ready to answer any call with caring and support. She will be missed by friends and family.She believed in angels. I am sure she will be one watching over you.

  2. Sharon Dunphy says:

    We will all miss your Mom dearly. She was like a sister to Maureen and me. We had so many good times together. I found a picture of the three of us as toddlers with our arms around each other. Life will not be the same without her.
    Emily, you were the light of her life. She thought the sun rose and set with you. You really were there for her seeing to her every need at the end of her life. It was a wonderful gift.
    Pat was a kind, caring nurse. We were so proud of her.
    I know she is with the angels in heaven looking over you.

    If you look up the word perfection in the dictionary you will find Pat Hutson. I was a classmate of Pat’s when we were earning our BSN. Pat would spend every waking minute on her class work until it was perfect. She pushed herself between cancer treatments to get to class and participate in presentations.
    One of Pat’s best days I believe is when she and Emily moved in together. She was thrilled to have Emily at her side during such difficult times. I will miss Pat at work she was a dedicated true professional and great friend.

    Emily I was so sorry to hear that your mother passed away. She was so kind. She talked highly of you and was just crazy about you. Even when you and your mother went over to Peg’s when you were little it was so obvious how much she loved you. I know she will be with you as your own personal angel.
    She was a real animal lover and loved watching you on the horses. I was so happy when she moved closer to me so I could take care of Merlin and Kiki and at the same time become a little closer to her. She will be missed by a lot of people. I hope in time your memories will get you through the really tough days. Kathy

    Our time together was much too short. At the same time, I am grateful to have found my lovely sister and her sweet daughter. Family was so important to Pat. Pat was the strongest woman I have known. She was a skilled and caring nurse who earned the Bachelor’s in Nursing and fulfilled a dream. Emily, your mother was so proud of you and always wanted the best for you. You were her angel in her last days and she will be a guiding angel for you now. Sandy

    Your mother inspired a group of nurses to a kind and gentle approach to patient care. She was a kind and gentle person very willing to help anyone in a time of need. Her patients loved her. She will be missed by the GI Family at Newton Wellesley Hospital.

    Emily, I worked with your mom back in the float pool days. I remember when you were going off to college and she was so proud of you. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. Condolences to you and your family. She was a lovely person who will be greatly missed.

    Your mom was a kind and gentle person and a compassionate caregiver. I worked with your mom many years ago in the float pool and then again when I transitioned to the GI unit. She regularly spoke of you and it was evident in to everyone how much she loved you.
