I met Hanna when she started working at Parkview Home Health. Hanna was the massage “angel” there. After we met – we shared an instant joy for one another. Hanna ALWAYS had a positive uplifting word to say to her coworkers, friends, and her patients. Hanna’s “light” and spirit will live on. She will continue to have an impact on every life she touched.
❤️Jesus has you wrapped in the comfort of his arms, Hanna!❤️
