  • Just wanted to give my condolences to Mandy, Larry & Candy. I loved being with Ada while I was working in Activities @ Wintersong/ Country Club. She was talented and original with all the crafts she did. I really felt her inner kindness when one day she assisted me in helping some of the residents having difficulty with a special craft. I was glad to get to know her the short time I was with her. I was back for a visit the beginning of October and was able to give her a hug.
    Special thanks to Mandy also for all the times you helped this needy Activity Coordinator out!
    PS I will be making a donation in her name to: feed the children

  • We are so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort continue to be with you and your family during this difficult time. We all look forward to a time when death will be no more-Rev 21:4. Our prayers are with you.

  • I have no doubt that God will remember her and keep her memory safe. He will surely be glad to bring her back to life in a perfect world when suffering will be no more and we will all welcome back our loved ones that are asleep in death. (Revelation 21:4 & John 5:28, 29) May our loving Father bring your family the peace and comfort only He can provide.
