I am so sorry for your loss. She still had her whole life ahead of her. I am a registered nurse in an emergency room. I have so much respect for paramedics and ambulance medics, they are the ones who are really on the front lines and often make all the difference in a patient’s outcome. I have 2 little ones, I can not imagine losing my daughter. God Speed.
