Sandra, Tony, Jennifer and family, so sorry to hear about your loss. Your mother and grandmother was very special to me. I so enjoyed her visits when I got to the nursing home. She was always so sweet and loving. I was so glad that I got to visit with her on the last visit. It was very uplifting to know that she realized it was me and told me she loved me. Truly a blessing from God and she will be missed. My visits won't be the same but at least she is not suffering anymore. Love you all.

I have fond memories of Miss Trudy. She had me playing basketball in Middle School and I was a terrible player! But I remember how much she loved all sports. I know she will be missed. Thoughts and prayers will be with each of you now and in the days to come.

My deepest sympathy to all of Mrs. Lindsey's family. I only knew her for just a short time when she and my mother were roommates at Greene Point Nursing Home. She was indeed a good friend to my mother and made some of those difficult days a little easier for Mama. I can remember walking in on them sharing their snacks with each other and having their very own 'tea party'! On the day that Mama was discharged, Mrs. Lindsey insisted on pushing Mama in her wheelchair to the front door to be able to see her off. They exchanged hugs and I love yous. Fortunately, my sister took Mama back to visit with her just a few weeks ago. Mrs. Lindsey was a wonderful lady and I know she will be greatly missed. Sending love and prayers for the family.
