The family would like to express its gratitude and thanks to the staff (from housekeeping to nurses) of the Westmoreland Rehabilitation and Nursing Facility for the never-ending patience and care they provided during her three years at the facility.
Even with her diminishing health in the last few months, her sense of humor and wit were the center of many great stories, laughs and memories. While she will be greatly missed, especially by her Sissy and Nicky, the family is glad she’s not suffering any longer.
She was a wonderful caregiver to all, and now it’s her turn to be cared for in Heaven. Until we all see you again we love you!
