So sorry we were away when Honey passed on. She enjoyed a long life filled with family and was so fortunate to spend much of it in her home. Bless all her family for taking such good care of her.

Thanks to everyone who visited mom, and who honored her August 5 at church. She loved all who spent time with her and all her caregivers at home and at Glen Hill. We will always remember the compassion and kindness mom was given. She is now enjoying a much deserved rest. Special thanks to dear cousins Mary and Barbara, fighting their own battles, who found the time to show their love to mom. ?
