Sheila, Sandra, Dana and Families
Sorry for your loss, and hoping the healing, comfort and strength of God be with you all. I only met with your mom a few times, and I hope God is, to each of you, what you need him to be over the next several months. Peace you each of you.

To Sheila and all of Alta's family,
Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your mother and grandmother. Thank you for allowing the staff at Alliance Home Health and Hospice to assist with her care intermittantly over the past couple years. I appreciate the fact that this loss is difficult for each of you. Hopefully, you can remember the good times and maybe even write them down. Sometimes that is helpful in easing the burden of sorrow. Sorry I was not able to attend her services as I was out of state on vacation.
