Grandma Ash taught me GRACE. the ability to forgive yourself enough to allow yourself to forgive others. And thus, love truly begins.

Larry and family,
It was such an honor and priviledge to be a part of Juanita's care. She was such a sweet and loving person even when she was in so much pain. I will miss seeing her but know I will see her again one day. May Jesus wrap His loving arms around all of you at this time. Dee RN Illinois Cancer Care
