The family is so appreciative of the loving care Jackie and Melvin have received from the wonderful caregivers, CNAs, nurses, therapists, Anne Adams (who works miracles) and the administrative staff at Crowne Healthcare in Montgomery. We are also very thankful for the dedicated staff at Elmcroft Assisted Living and especially to her special friend and former caregiver, Ola Crosby. Our sincere gratitude goes to Carol Lovejoy and Roselin Wright for their wonderful care of Jackie and Melvin over the last three years.

I met Jackie in the late 60s when I began working with her. She was so kind to me and I've always appreciated that about her. I remember her working a crossword puzzle at breaktime every day and was so impressed that she seemed to work it so effortlessly. I know that her family must have many good memories of her.
