To the family,
It was my pleasure to care for your Mother for the last few years. She made me laugh so many times and was a bright spot in my day. She was blessed to have the loving family that loved her so dearly. I will miss seeing her everyday. My thoughts are with you all at this time. May your fondest memories eventually overtake the grief.
