Mrs. Hodnett was a role model to me. As a young teen, I worked at the hospital to make a major decision - did I really want to be a nurse. Because of her leadership, I have had a very rich and rewarding career. I know you all will miss her dearly but know she was a positive influence to many. Thanks for sharing her with us. Lucy

The world has lost a very dear lady. I will always remember how welcome I was always made to feel when visiting Lynn and John. One of my fondest memories in visiting over the years was Sibyl's pecan pie. I have never tasted anything like it anywhere! You are all in our thoughts and prayers and I hope you will find comfort in the many wonderful and loving memories you have a dear mother, grandmother and friend to so many. Love, Margaret
