AngelaI want to say how sorry I am for your loss. I have had the pleasure and joy of being able to care for Christine at her home at Glendale. It was also such a joy to see her each day! She was always so kind and appreciative. Always making us laugh and smile :) I called her Grandma a lot as she reminded me of my own .... There is a large void here at the village as we all, staff & residents alike can feel her absence each day. Christine will be forever in our hearts! Angela S xo
