I am so sorry for the family's loss and I will miss Miss Ilene very much. She was my first resident to meet at Ossian Healthcare. She made me feel welcome. We talked a lot and laughed a lot. She talked a lot about her family, she loved them all very much. She was so proud of all of them. I am going to miss her, my heart hurts at the thought of her not being there anymore. RIP Miss Ilene.
