My condolences on the loss of your wonderful mother. I was privileged to spend time and get to know her over the past few years at APH. When I was leaving for my new job last month, she gave me the biggest hug goodbye. Such a beautiful person and friend to so many residents….always pleasant and thankful. She will be very missed by many there. May you be comforted by loving memories always. Thinking of you all in this difficult time.

John and family,

I met your Mom many years ago at the St. John’s Seniors Fifty Plus Dinners/Outings. She was a gracious lady and always dressed so beautifully. Our paths crossed again at The Agnes Pratt Home three years ago. May cherished memories of your Mom bring you peace and comfort in the days ahead.
