Ivy moved in Tabor 2nd floor in 2013 . I think September. I loved that lady right from the start . Her sister Queenie came everyday . Rarely missed . I loved joking with Ivy . She made many friends at Tabor . I must have served her thousands of chocolate icecreams. My favorite time with her was early morning when she came into the dining room . She kept me company while I set up. We laughed and talked . Of course she needed her coffee right away . I still look for her and set up for her forgetting . Then I am happy she is with the Lord. Sometimes I would say to her . "Ivy you need to drink your juice come on eat . Queenie wants to know . " She would laugh . Such a sweet soul . Never complained about a thing . My Dear friend Ivy you are at Peace . . My condolences to Queenie Nancy Toni and all the family . Thank you for sharing Ivy with me . Love Jocelyn xoxox

Ivy girl was truly an amazing woman, I just loved our evening routine when she lived in her apartment at Tabor we always joked around with each other, we had a lot in common our fondness of baileys for one our preference of pants over skirts but mostly that mischievous grin and the inner kid in us always wanting to have fun I will miss her, my condolences to all that loved her especially Queenie never have I seen such a beautiful bond between sisters. Rest In Peace my friend
