Something to Talk About

Quotes from our ClientsHow do we begin to thank you for the wonderful support and care you gave to Mom and the entire family. Her illness was brief, which was a blessing. Out of all the bad came some good. We were honored to have Eileen move so willingly into Mom’s home and care for her for those few weeks. She not only took care of Mom, but all of us. She tenderly guided us through the process of Mom’s death. Eileen is an amazing and talented woman who quickly became a part of our family. We are richer people for her presence in our lives. It became apparent that there were angels along the journey of Mom’s illness and death. The both of you and especially Eileen are among those angels. Thank you!

- Fondly, the family of M.R.
