Summer – our daughter-in-law. She was a very special and loving wife, mother, daughter and friend to us all. She will always be with us in thought and memory. I see her in everything she touched and in everyone she knew. Our love for her will go on forever!

Linda - Jan 25, 2011

Summer was my daughter (not daughter in law) and I don’t know how we will find joy in life without her. I am filled with sorrow and cannot even begin to express the depth of my grief at losing her so soon.

I will always be here to help you, Scott and the children in any way I can.

Growing up there isn’t a family event I remember going to and not seeing Summer. She was such a special person and had such a warm heart. I moved away from OH and came back to visit when my dad was in the hospital for heart surgery. As I walked in the hospital I saw Summer as the OR nurse. I was so proud of her and so happy to see what a beautiful woman she had become. Her loss is devastating and I pray that her husband, children, family, and friends find peace as they grieve over her loss.
~With love, thoughts, and prayers

Mr. & Mrs. Chris Bengal - Jan 20, 2011

We are so sorry for this loss. When my father, Stephen Bengal, was at Bethesda North in the ICU unit we ran into Summer after not seeing her for many years after high school. To our family it was such a relief to have someone taking care of my father that we knew personally. I don’t remember if she was on call or not when he passed but just knowing that she helped care for him during his final days was reassuring. Our family was very grateful to Summer. She was a wonderful person with a kind and loving soul. Again, we are sorry for the loss of Summer. If there is anything we can do to help the family please let us know.

Mary Cartaino - Jan 20, 2011

My deepest sympathy to her husband, children and her whole family. It was a honor to have crossed paths with her. I’ll miss her smile and sense of humor. She always made my job easier just being in my room.

Jennifer Bell Beavers - Jan 20, 2011

Summer was such a wonderful person with such a huge heart! I am so terribly sorry to hear of her passing but know that Heaven has gained an Angel! Keeping her children, husband and family in my prayers! I will miss you dear friend!
