I was one of the workers at the hospital who had the privilege to care for Zora. Something about her sweet, kind nature kept drawing me back into her room. I grew very fond of her, and she and her daughters were such a blessing to me. I look forward to the sweet day I get to see her again, when she is not in a hospital bed.
