She was our rock while here on Earth and now she is our guardian angel. We will hold a celebration of life at a future date for those who knew her. Thanks to those at the Polidori House for taking such good care of her and everyone at Hospice for caring for her, especially Heather.
We will think of you every day with love and remember the happy memories that we were blessed to have shared with you.
