I don’t know if you remember me or not. But, I was one of the CNA’s that cared for your mother at Fairmont. This was before 2011 as I retired in May of that year. Mildred was always a pleasure to assist and was always so sweet, polite, and friendly. We had many interesting conversations on many subjects and she always proved to be a very smart and delightful lady. I know she will be truly missed but, I also know she is in heaven where she belongs. God Bless you and your family at this most difficult time.....
With Deepest Sympathy,
