Gail and Family, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to provide care to your mother. What an honor and privilege to have known Ernestine. She was very dear to each of us and such an inspiration. She always shared a smile and often times a joke to brighten our day and was so appreciative of the care and support we provided to her. We love her and we will miss her dearly. We will continue praying for you and your family.

With Love: Jenni, Cindy, and Deneen
