I’m so sorry for your recent loss. My deepest condolences to your family. Death of a loved one is never easy to endure, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Continue looking to God and you will always find comfort in him (2 Cor 1:3,4). He will soon destroy the enemy of death (1 Cor 15:26), and He will soon return our loved ones to us through the resurrection (John 5:28,29). Please visit and search “When Someone You Love Dies”, it helped me through some difficult times and I hope you can find comfort in it also.

At the beginning stages of Alzheimer's my mom would get me to help her get cards ready. She would tell me what to write and then she would sign them, saying I could write better than her. "Oh Mom you did just fine! " So today I will do this one more time, She would have wanted me to thank Heartland Hospice for their exceptional compassion and care for her and family, they were at our home thru the highs and the lows, the whole Team always supported my mom, caregivers and myself. Mom would also like to Thank her caregivers ,Rachael, Katie and Bonnie for their unconditional love and comfort, Rachael would play her guitar and mom loved it. So today I am Thanking all who was a part of her journey and for taking care of my precious Mother,
