“Two decades ago, a nurse began her career in the old Watsonville Community Hospital, where Watsonville/Aptos Adult Education now stands. It is where her love for the profession was cemented and where she met her future husband. That nurse - Jackie Tucker - now runs Care From the Heart Home Service, a successful in-home health care business based in `Santa Cruz."

Do Not Ask Me to Remember
Do not ask me to remember,
Don’t try to make me understand,
Let me rest and know you’re with me,
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I’m confused beyond your concept,
I am sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you
To be with me at all cost.
Do not lose your patience with me,
Do not scold or curse or cry,
I can’t help the way I’m acting,
Can’t be different though I try.
That the best of me gone,
Please don’t fail to stand beside me,
Love me’til my life is done
