FAMILY MEMOIRS - of grandchildren:
Grandma Thelma resided in the Monticello Park Assisted Living Center, where she came to love her caregivers as her own family. She was very happy there and enjoyed bingo, and reading, which was her passion.
The last few months of her life she resided at the Northwest Continuum Care Center where she received excellent care.
Her final days brought her to St. John's Hospital and everything was done to keep her comfortable, and help us as a family, walk together with her to Heaven's Gate.
Shortly before she went through those gates she said "I feel so blessed".

Daughter of Carl John THORSON
