Awe. She was a sweetheart who loved her family and loved to tease. I will miss this kind lady. I will never forget her laughter and how she would roll her eyes! She especially liked to tease her “boys”.

She was my favorite resident at Oregan. God rest her soul. She was a funny lady and her family was the best. She was greatly loved by them. Always in my thoughts.
