To Van Palmer's loved ones. My name is Sister Mary Caritas and i have know and respected Van since the 1950s and 1960s. At that time he worked both at Mercy hospital first shift and Providence Hospital second shift. He was a man of great compassion, dedicated to the medical field, loved his family and worked so they could have a better life.(in later years he used to tell me how proud you had made him)
Van was loved and respected

Dear Palme family I am so sorry for your loss. I worked a long time with Van at Mercy. He was one of my most favorite people.
