Hi Kathy and family, I just wanted to let you know what a blessing it was to have your mom in my life, even if it was for just a few short years. She was such a loving woman and so easy to talk to. The Saturday night before she passed, I went to visit her and we sat and watched "Chopped" on Food Network for an hour. I didn't have Ellie with me and I had such a good time learning about her and she said she learned a lot about me too. We talked about food (of course!) but also about her married life and how much she loved her family. I told her I was going to Vegas next week and of course she wanted to go with me. I also told her that when I got back, the weather should be warmer so we could spend some time outside in the courtyard. She seemed excited about that and also told me that she had been able to go outside recently with you guys and how much she enjoyed it. Before I left that night, she told me she was so glad I stopped by and that it made her night. It's people like your mom that make everything worth it. I've been a volunteer at Medilodge for almost 4 years and I've only become close with a handful of people. Your mom was one of my favorites and I will truly miss her. Love, Krissy
