Our family was blessed with an early Christmas celebration prior to her declining health. She left so many special memories. Everyone who met her thought she was so “cute” and wanted to take her home. We carry our mother in our hearts forever. Mom-your favorite words always to us were “I’ll be okay” and Mom…now you are more than okay. You’re in your Heavenly Home. Love, your Family.
Special Thanks to the caretakers, Debbie and Donna and Hospice nurses, Jen and Amy.
