Jim and Donna,
Sheryl and I want to offer our sincere sympathy to you and the rest of your family for your loss of Mrs. A. We have heard of so very many stories of her and the great times you shared with her. We know that you will miss her very much, and we feel as we're sure you do, that with no longer any suffering, she is now as they say in a better place. I believe it should be "she is in the BEST place" because of the sacrifice Jesus made for us all! Love, Dave and Sheryl

To Marylee Strong & family and Jim Cardno & family,

I'm truly sorry about the loss of your mother/mother-in-laws. I met her back in 1999 when I was working with Mr. Cardno. I found her to be such a warm, sweet, thoughtful and caring person. Occasionally, she'd bring wonderful array of goodies to us at work - chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies and her famous Louisiana Pound Cake which was out of this world. Mr. Cardno, my coworker Phyllis and I would meet her at Pete and George's Restaurant for lunch. She is such a joy to be with and make you feel like you're part of the extended family. She will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. RIP, Mrs. A., love you always.

To Ms. Armstrong's family. My heart and prayers go out to you. I had the opportunity to meet Ms. Armstrong when she moved into Bay Lake Assisted Living. She was a very pleasant smart woman. We had fun caring for her. She was always ready and trying to get up and go somewhere :-). We grew to love her in a very short period of time and she will be dearly missed.
