<<===  Nurses at Lenox Hill Hospital working on Mary's floor which handled medical-surgery patients. Mary is nurse in center back, chin hidden.   Nurse at far left is Mary Horn, who later was Mary's maid of honor.  Nurse at left in front row was Mary Ellen Raffa, who designed and sewed Mary's wedding dress.  Nurse at top is Judy Brot, whose husband Wilfrid owned a ski shop on Long Island.  We skied with them at Stratton.  Wilfrid and I skied down behind the professional skier, Spider Sabitch, who later was shot and killed by  Claudine Longet, former wife of singer Andy Williams.  Nursing caps vary, as each Nursing school had its distinct cap.
 

Mary took a short vacation to Puerto Rico with her roommate, Mary Ellen Kay and her nursing friend Soon Ja Yook.  ==>>>
