Carol, I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. My Mom, (Marilyn Rhodes), enjoyed sharing a room with your Mom at Sunrise. Your Mom was always delightful to visit with when I came to see Mom. Rest in peace, Helen.
Our prayers are with you. She will be greatly missed by all.
