Barb, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was such a good friend to my mom and our entire family for over 60 years. She was such a sweet and special lady and will always hold a special place in my heart. Love, Kathy
It was such a pleasure to know Miss Beverly. I worked with her when I was a CNA at the Care Center, and she was always the one who made my day better! I would walk in and greet her as Miss Beverly, and she would stick her hands on her hips and respond back with "Hello there Lady!" Even after I stopped working there I tried to come visit her when I had a chance and her and I could chat forever if time allowed. She will be greatly missed!!!
Barb and Cindy, My condolences to you both. Barb, I know you are close to your mom. You are in my thoughts.
It was a pleasure to be able to meet Beverley. I worked with her during my clinical for my CNA class. She would always find some way to make me laugh or smile in the morning when we worked with her. Beverley was a pleasure to visit and chat with and we will miss her very much!
