Our Mother worked for Stokes Grocery for many years. She then worked for 10 years at Richland Council On Aging.

Our deepest gratitude and heartfelt thanks to the Richardson Medical Center for all their attentiveness and love during our Mother's hospital stays.
We also want to express our appreciation to Hospice Ministries and their nursing staff for the compassion and care shown during the last week of our Mother's life.
We will long remember and forever be thankful to all nurses, CNA's, and the kitchen staff at Rayville Nursing and Rehabilitation.
We (3) children want to thank Bennie Roark for his untiring love and devotion to our Mother during her stay at the nursing home.
