    Maureen was wonderful. She was smart, a great Nurse Manager but also with a sense of humor. We worked together at the Peter Bent Brigham and when the 11th floor opened, I was the Manager of her floor so she was my boss. She was a fabulous person. She will be missed. The world lost someone very special.
