Grace's family would like to say thank you to the staffs of Karmenta, Artisan and Serenity for their loving care of Mom. We also would like to thank Dr. David Kass for his care of mom, his understanding and compassion, and for telling Mom it’s ok to eat ice cream when she wanted. The biggest thank you goes to Heartland Hospice, they did everything and anything that would keep Mom comfortable. They were also there for her and her family. We love you Mom, we know you’re no longer in pain no more suffering. You’re with Liela and your family in heaven and making a place so we all can be together again.
If you wish to honor Mom, all memorials will go to Heartland Hospice. To view and sign this guestbook, please visit www.ryanfuneralservice.com
