Sandy and Paul, we want to thank you for taking care of mom these past three and a half years. What a blessing you are to our family. Taking mom into your home and caring for her. The care you have given means even more to us because you did it with love, it put our minds at ease knowing she was with you, and not in a nursing home where she would have been just another patient. We know it hasn't always been easy for you, putting up with the rest of us, coming in and out of your home or having the responsibility 24/7. We just want you to know how much we appreciate you guys. All your love and caring, you are a special couple, we can always count on you. That means more to us than any words could convey. Love, Your Family.
