My thoughts and prayers are
Sally and I were at Spring Arbor today and heard of Mavoline’s passing. She was a very special lady. Always looking for ways to help others. She was a huge blessing to me. Sally stopped at her room today and held her head stright up and sniffed. I think she was looking for her. They seemed to really enjoy eachother. I look forward to seeing her someday in heaven. Your family is in my prayers. She will be greatly missed. Many of the ladies were saying that today how sweet she was and easy to get to know. With love cindy and sally

Lynn, Erika and family … I am so sorry for your loss … my heart goes out to you and all your family. Your Mom was blessed with a long life and I know you are at peace in knowing her suffering is over. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with each of you. I will hope to see you Sunday afternoon. With Deepest Sympathy … Love, Alton
I’m so glad that Buddy and I were able to say goodbye to Mavoline at Elizabeth House this past week. She was such a special person in my life, especially after my mother passed away last August. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.
