Dear Donna, your wonderful mom is now looking at God, face to face. A divine moment she always was waiting for. I enjoyed visiting her every day for so many years in the Nursing Home, always with a huge smile, welcoming all. Lovely woman that would stay forever in my heart.

I’ll never forget your mom’s beautiful smile and sweet humor. She’s so enjoyed her card group at Sonterra Health Center and I know they truly enjoyed her as well. Now they’re all back playing cards up in heaven but I miss your mom already. Donna, you were the the best daughter ever and took such amazing care of your mom. Hugs to you all at this most difficult time, Shelly
