Your Mother was such a special friend to my parents, Charlie and Nina Birch. We heard your parents names mentioned often, as they had many good times together. Your Mother was especially good about visiting Dad in the nursing home, which meant a lot to me. My sympathy to all of you during this time.

Olive was a wonderful woman! I enjoyed taking care of her when I worked in the Assisted Living department at Liberty Village. She was one of my favorites & I might have spoiled her with a few snacks now & then. You have my deepest sympathy!

Sara, so sorry for your loss - didn't know your Mom very well, but she always had a smile and treated me like a long lost friend whenever I met her. Just a sweet person.
