The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Cleveland Health Care Center. There are too many individuals to name, but you know who you are. You cooked for her, did her clothes, helped her shower, made her bed (the way she wanted it!), dispensed her meds, checked on her after your shift was over, sat and talked with her when she was depressed, and too many other things to mention. Thank you for loving and caring for our mother. We couldn’t have done it without you.
To Dee, thank you for your love and for always making her hair look beautiful. She told me that if she died before she got her perm to tell you to ‘twist it up tight!’! Well, she got her perm, and it was just what she wanted!
