We will all miss the wonderful meals and baking done over the years. Homemade rolls, bread, cookies, bars, caramel corn, there was nothing Mom couldn’t make taste wonderful. Before she became ill, she enjoyed crocheting, knitting, tatting, crossword puzzles, reading, growing tomatoes and cucumbers.

We were blessed to be able to keep Mom in her home until her last breath. We are forever grateful to her daytime caregiver, Debbie, for the compassion and care she provided this last year. You are our angel on earth. We also want to thank St. John’s United Home Health and Hospice team. From the first meeting to the day of Mom’s passing, they were so compassionate and caring, A special thanks to Katie, the nurse who answered all our questions and never left our side when we needed her and Elizabeth for the many prayers and music when Mom made her final journey.

We love and miss you every day, but know you are once again moving free with no pain. Until we meet again, we know you are watching over us.
