    I was blessed to have had Ms Stagg as a nursing instructor at th harris 1995. She told me that i needed to go back to school to become an RN. It took me several years but i did it. She was the best, loved and appreciated by many. Her compassion, love for nursing and education, and knowledge will live on through the many nurses that she taught. Rest in peace Ms Stagg. You will forever be remembered. Condolences to her family.

    My heartfelt condolences to the Stagg family for the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the promise of the resurrection, (John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15) from Jehovah God (Psalms 83:18), and that he will sustain and strengthen you all at this time to endure not only this trial but future ones as well, whatever they may be.
