I've known Betty my whole life. She worked with my grandmother at Southampton Hospital on the second floor. I also worked with her and I can honestly say, if I was sick I would want a nurse like Betty taking care of me.
The "vases" to hold the flowers are "recycled" from the hospital. Water pitchers that would of been thrown out,now hold bouquet of flowers.
The stand is on the "Honor" system and once in awhile we will chat and she tells me of certain people who aren't that honest.
I told her about the NPR article and she just smiled.
