Thinking of You with Sympathy I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your grandmother. She was the nicest lady who sure knew how to make Oatmeal Scoothies with Reese's Pieces in them taste perfect. My condolences to you also on the passing of your mother. I know it is hard to lose loved ones, expecially around holidays. Their memories will always be there for you to remember and help you to smile again.

I am a nurse at Heritage Manor and have worked there for 13 yrs. I have the recollection that Emma once told me that seh was from Evansville; I told her that I was a Hoosier, too, from Huntington. I had no idea that she was a hairdresser. She generally had a smile and had a good appetite until her recent illness. Just within the past couple of weeks when I woke her up and said "good morning" to her, she said "good morning" back to me with a smile. May she rest in peace.
