Norbert was a bright spot in my day. I enjoyed taking care of him and Sally very much, even on grumpy days. Thank you so much for sharing them with me. I am happy they are together again and hope the good memories shine through any sadness you may feel.

Dear Patty and the entire Tollefson family. I want to extend my sympathies to you at the loss of both of your parents. It was our pleasure and honor to provide care to them while they were here with us at Marian of Saint Paul. Although they both were suffering with their own diseases, I know you will miss them dearly. Sending you all of our prayers as you say goodby to your father.
