I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing away. I had lunch every week at the Atrium with Miss Joann and the other ladies at her table (Miss Hazel and Miss Eloise). When visitors were no longer allowed, I was dropping off a note each week to let her and the others know that I missed them and they were in my prayers. You all will be in my prayers during this time.

Sincerely, Melanie VanDenhende
