My deepest sympathy and prayers for Brian and family. Whenever I think of Cosy I see
a sweet happy soul. I had the pleasure of working with her both at LGH and the SOP Surgical Center,and she had such a tremendous work ethic and sense of humor. I have so many
fond memories of her. She will be surely missed.

God bless,
Dorie Price
