Nanette was the most loving and compassionate person I have ever had the pleasure to work with. During her years at Scott and White Home Health I had the pleasure to work closely with Nanette, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She was so detailed and ensured out patients and staff were provided care. My family and I lift her family up in this difficult time, but know she is an amazing angel that finally got her wings!! God bless you all.
