    Dear Loved Ones,
    I will miss Elizabeth but she is so much happier now. I spent time with her at (Heritage Care Center) Shelby Pointe doing quiet activities with her. We would sing, read together and many times she would respond with a sound, or smile or twinkle in her eye. We will miss her and the family too. I am sorry that I cannot come to calling hours as Tuesday evening is my night to be with the residents doing activities. Stop to see us when you can.
