    Keri was a very outgoing nice lady whose life was taken too soon. From me and all the fellow 2011 graduates of Eastern Suffolk School of Practical Nursing who got to interact with you every day, God Bless and may you and your son rest in peace. My prayers go out to your husband and to your 2 children for a full and speedy recovery.
