It's so much I could say about Mrs. Eliza... I really enjoyed working with Mrs. Eliza, I will miss her smile and the laughter we shared. But most of all I will miss her dancing, I would say Get it Get it Get it and she would get to moving them legs and grooving... I just thank God I was able to take care of Mrs. Eliza it definitely was a blessing...

The first day I started working with Mrs. Eliza I said to myself, YES! I was so happy to be taking care of a lady with color... The best... I will miss her smile and the laughter we shared, most of all I am going to miss her shoulder rock lol, When Mrs. Eliza would start moving them shoulders she was ready to dance up out the chair... God Bless me with her and I am so glad I have some of the best memories... Sending hugs, love and prayers to the family... ..
