To those who came often and had a routine of coming, when they didn’t show up, she would make sure to pick up the phone and remind them they didn’t come.
We would like to thank all her doctors who cared for our mother throughout the years and to all the medical staff who tended to her during her final days with us here on earth. Many thanks to all her caregivers that she had throughout her adult life. We are so thankful for each and every one of you who were a part of our mother’s life and cared for her. Also a special thank you to all the family and friends who constantly kept her in their prayers.
