A special thank you to Unity Hospice and all the family members who helped keep her at home where she wanted to stay.

Mom, you were unselfish, always helping others. A strong person who would say "You Were a Tuff Old Bird". At the end, all you wanted was some energy. Thanks for being such a good mom. We Love You!
