Our hearts are filled with sadness. On July 30th, 2014 God decided it was time for Olivia Naples Bostic (Liv) to join him in Heaven.
I (David, husband) only knew Olivia for eight years, some had known her longer and some less, but to have known her is to know she was an incredible person. Some of you knew her as a coworker, some from being her patient and others knew her as a friend.
Her co-workers knew she always brought her “A” game and you better keep up. Olivia believed that you always give your best and expect everyone to do the same. She was always prepared for the task at hand but could adapt to the challenges that arose. Olivia brought out the best in those who worked around her. She would jump at the chance to help out if it made another’s life easier; taking call, rounds or staying as long as it took to get the job completed.
Her patients knew her as a caring, thoughtful and devoted person. She always spent extra time, answering all questions, spent many hours on the phone easing the tension of an upcoming surgery or to help after and always with a smile.
Her friends knew her as a person that loved life and all that it brought. She made you want to be a better person; she is a life changer. The love and concern she had for others was enormous. She knew how to brighten a room with her smile and laughter. Her positive outlook on life and all that it offered was infectious.
If you knew Liv as a friend, coworker or a patient; then you were a better person because of it.
Olivia fought an incredible battle against a terrible disease. She fought with courage, grace, class, wit, and with the thought of how she could help others along the way. Liv never asked why, but what can I do to make it better for others.
To know Olivia is to know that she is a very special, incredible person.
God be with you and rest in peace Olivia! You will always LivON in our hearts and our thoughts.
