I worked with Priscilla for many years in therapy. She always had a smile on her face and loved her job. She took her work seriously but also had fun and made sure the patients did too. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a great lady.

I am sorry for the loss of your loved one. Priscilla was a great friend to our Mother "Willena Garrett" and me for many years. You never saw her without a smile. She always made you feel welcome. We lost contact after Mom became sick. We lost her 3 weeks ago..
Priscilla and Mom are probably dancing in Heaven.
