We want to extend our thanks to everyone for your care and concern for Mom. It meant so much to our family. This pizza lunch seem like a very small token of our appreciation however Mom loved pizza and she would have enjoyed the bars. She loved her sweets! God bless you as you continue working with those entrusted to your care, serving from your heart with patience and love.
