    My name is Katie and I was Julian’s home health nurse up until his time of passing. During that short time that I saw him, I developed a relationship/friendship with Susan. She always had me laughing and gave the true meaning to “no filter” she met my husband Cody and my daughter Kamryn as well. I would run into her periodically at the wellness centers cafe and saw her recently at collier park, just a few days before she was discharged. We were always so excited to run into each other. I am shocked at her passing but I am glad that she and Julian are back together. I will miss running into her around town and catching up. Prayers for peace are with the family.
