Chapter 3 (Angel Falling Softly)

"Deseret Children's Hospital" is my nom de plume for Primary Children's Medical Center. The Utah territory was originally called the "State of Deseret." In the Book of Mormon, a deseret is a kind of honeybee. Utah is the "Beehive State." The Deseret News is one of the state's two major dailies.

Primary Children's Hospital was founded by the Mormon church. It is now run by Intermountain Health Care and the University of Utah Department of Pediatrics. The name comes from the Primary Association of the Mormon church, a Sunday school organization for children.
