Dearest Anne and Family, So very sorry to hear about your sweet mom. I dearly loved her when I worked in Activities @Brady Home several years ago. She was so adorable and looked more like she came to visit rather then being a resident. She was always dressed to go with purse and all..What an adorable lady. Love to all of you!
