She was such a wonderful second mama. Even growing up as a small child she made me feel so special. I can see her sweet smile. What we hold in memory is ours to treasure forever. Love you and the rest of the family.

She was one of the first patients I recieved after starting at Amedisys. She was such a joy for me to see each week as well as Robbie and Myra. I will always cherish our laughs and memories! Your family unit is absolutely amazing and I wish everyone had what you all have. Robbie and Myra took such great care of her and truly made my job easy! I will never forget this sweet soul. She touched my heart in so many ways as well as the rest of the family. I am beyond thankful I was allowed the opportunity to care for her. May she rest in peace and rejoice in the arms of her lord and savior!

I always felt like the most important person when I visited my Aunt Christine. She seemed to be filled with joy just knowing I was there or when I talked to her on the phone. I'm really not happy about not getting to visit during this pandemic, but I know it was for the best! My Mother would tell of growing up and having like a second Mom because Aunt Christine took care of everybody! Precious memories will always remain! Love and Prayers for all our family!
