I thought of you today,I was working a 1000 piece puzzle with 2 of the residents. I thought of all the laughs and stories we would tell each other over the puzzles. My family will miss you dearly and I will think of you often. Thank you for your love and joy.
And a hug around the neck

I used to be an aide at Indywood. I hate to hear of her passing. I was just thinking of her yesterday. I will be praying for her family.
