I currently visit a very good friend of mine at Oak Pointe have been for 2 years. I go to the Chapel and play piano with my friend almost every time I go. The music can be heard out in the hallway. Vesta always made her way to the Chapel to listen and sometimes sing softly with us. I learned to love and cherish her presence. It was only two weeks ago that she did this. I saw her for the last time last Thursday at the lunch table when I hugged her not knowing this would be my last hug. My friend and I at Oak Pointe are very sad today. Words can't express how we will miss her. We send our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the family and want you to know that she was precious to all of us at Oak Pointe. God bless you all.
