I’m not very good with words, but I would like to thank all of your staff who helped us in our time of need. Each of them was kind and considerate to the whole family while they were here. They know what they are doing and it made it a lot easier on us. Ann especially, made us feel like she was one of us. There were so many of us, it was probably hard on them, but they did their jobs well and I would have them again if needed.
