Hi I will miss my beloved friend so much
I took care of Mrs .Woodruff . She would love to here me sing to her when I came in to work at Crowne Rehab. She was sweet,loving,and kind woman. I was waiting on her to come back so I sing with her again. I was so hurt when I received word. I spent precious moments with this amazing lady. She will always be apart of me. Will miss the long conversations we had together. Fair well my sweet angel. Til we meet again. Love Tracy Watson
