I was lucky enough to care for Goldie during her stay at Mary's Garden. She was so full of life and we shared many great moments together in which she often spoke of her husband, John. She loved him and her family very much, often sharing stories of the past and Ellison Ridge. My favorite memories were about her very best friend from college, where she was a straight A student. She often giggled as she exclaimed that nobody could come between them. She truly was an amazing person with so many who cared for her.

Dear Larry, Gary and all family,
Sending love and prayers and thank you for sharing your mother with me and my family, as a neighbor, friend, and anything that she saw, where she could be a help.
Mae was always dear to our family. She was especially dear to our Mom, Annabell Lilly, by being there for her during sicknesses, accidents and deaths in our family. We will always love her and her family.
May God be very near and dear to you.
