Dear Denice, Theresa and family.
So sorry for your loss. Your mom looked like an angel with her beautiful serene face and a little opening of her eyes as though to say "keep singing hymns to me". I was on call Saturday and kept vigil with her Saturday evening. She was peaceful. May your memories of her love console you on sad days. Blessings, Carole Butler, Chaplain, Caregroup Parmenter Hospice.

OH my bestie... I will always remember Mary! It's hard to believe just a week ago, she seemed to just be napping as we sat by her bed. EVERY time I saw your mom, she made a point to say "Thank you for being such a good friend to Teresa"... she would always thank me for remembering her with an annual Christmas card too. She was so thoughtful and grateful. Her giving heart was unwavering. She made such an impact on many with the generosity of her time, and caring for others. Love you and Denice LOTS and I KNOW she is looking down at you both so very proud and thankful you were there for her and each other. XOXO
