Ann Honeycutt..

Florence Nightingale

The "Nightingale Pledge"

The Nightingale Pledge was composed by Lystra Gretter, an instructor of nursing at the old Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and was first used by its graduating class in the spring of 1893. It is an adaptation of the Hippocratic Oath taken by physicians.

I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician, in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.
****Our Lord has gained a wonderful Angel. That the ones she left behind will be here to carry on. This lady was a Nurse and extraordinare caregiver in which she took the oath to help, all in need.  She was always going above and beyond her duties, to make sure that everyone was provided for.  Having been sick for a while there were lots of days, you would have never known it. As she carried herself to serve those that needed the care.  While my mother was a resident at the facility in which this beautiful lady worked and cared for others at. I had the honor of meeting her.  I walked into my mothers room one early afternoon as Mom had told me that I needed to meet one of the finest nurses that she had been associated with.  When I walked in that afternoon Ms. Ann happened to be there and she was full of energy, a real go getter. We talked and it was then my mother provided the information that she and this lady went to Fort Knox nursing school together and the times that they had, had together.  Mom had a lot of admiration for this lady and that when the CNA's were called they didn't miss a beat in getting there to help Ms. Ann with anything that was needed of them. Yes she could crack a whip when she needed to, but this was a part of her teaching, and caring methods. This Nurse was an inspiration to others, always there for everyone.  Whether it was passing out meds, to lend a ear or even sneaking a diabetic a good piece of candy every now and then. Yes Ms. Ann, mom told me you took care of her sweet tooth. She will be sadly missed by all that has ever been a part of her life, and learning experiences. a lady that no doubt our Lord will be treating the same way that she treated others.  Her seeds were well sown.  Thank you Ms. Ann for all of the treasures, lifes lessons, friendship and all that you gave to us..... We will forever remember you. Until we meet again.... As quoted from one of her friends..... "Enjoy your retirement"... you have earned your wings... rest in Peace.... we love you....****

Tah Tah for now, Until we meet again...
take care of my loved ones...
