I was one of the Homefront Health Care CNA'S that helped your Mom and Dad a few years back! She was quite comical and I appreciated her genuineness! She took flak from noone! She treated me like a daughter and we got along famously. She is already and certainly will be missed! The memories of our times together are priceless! Very truly yours, Deborah -CNA P.S. Sorry I couldn't make the graveside service.
