Oh Dear Family of Hermaine. How well I remember her. When my son Christian was 2 years old, in Glen Dale hospital, it was Hermaine who plucked him from the edges of danger, swinging on the peach curtain around his baby bed. That was in 1962. We have spoken of her often over the years. She was much loved, and will be remembered by us, through love.
