  5. Thanks so much to all the caregivers at Brookdale for the wonderful job they did taking care of mom and for the kind words. I’ll never forget the big smile she had for me every time I would visit. I wish I had visited more often. Very strange, even though she was 92 years old I always felt like I had a little more time.
    Rest well mom, I love you. ❤ You will be missed deeply.

  6. My deepest condolences to the whole family. Although I didn’t know her personally, I know Dan and he is a fine gentleman who always has a smile on his face. I’m sure the happiness and kindness ran in his family-generating from his mom. Rest in peace .
