"Words cannot adequately express our gratitude to each and everyone of you who cared for my mother. The care given to her, especially in her last days, was outstanding. Each and everyone of you shared in her living and in her dying. The show of emotions, the kiss on the cheek, the kind words spoken to her, were all so appreciated by her family. As I think of her life there as a resident with you, you too were a part of her family."
