How do members of a nursing unit and a healthcare center find their way through the tragic loss of a friend and colleague? This article shares how the hospital “family” came together to offer support and empathy to one another, and how God revealed himself amidst the loss.

“A thirty-nine year old nurse from the medical nursing unit...had been brutally killed.”

Vicky Adella Keys, MSN, RN-BC, is nurse educator for the medical, surgical, and orthopedic units at PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center in Longview, Washington. She attends Heritage Bible Church in Cathlamet, Washington.
