I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Ethels passing. Aunt Ethel was a wonderful person who loved her family with all her heart!! She also was a educator who made the lives of those she taught that much richer. May her memory always be for a blessing!!

Ethel was a dear friend and neighbor
Who always let me know when something needed attention. We ate our meals together. She always talked about her boys and how proud she was of them. She loved to play bingo. We will miss her always.
Avalon. God be with you. David P.

It was a pleasure to meet her for a short year and couple of month of working at Christopher Heights. I’m so sorry for the loss and I send my prayers and condolences to her family. She was such a beautiful nice lady and I’m so glad I got to meet and work with Ethel. Her smile lit up the room when I would walk in her room, she would be so happy to see me as her companion. There were many times where she would even ask if I was on her assignment because she loved the personality and bond I had with her. It was a pleasure to get to know and meet Ethel. I’m so sorry and my heart is saddened.. CH feels so dull now. Rest in the sweetest peace and remember I will always miss u Ethel no matter where u are.
