  1. I am truly sorry for your loss. Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss. I am here for you. Please let me know if I can help in any way.

  2. Pam, George, JoAnn and family,
    I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. She has been a dear family friend for over 65 years. May God comfort you in your sorrow. Please accept my deepest sympathy. With heartfelt regards.

  3. George and Marilee,
    My sympathy to you on your loss. My aunt was a resident at the Avalon, and passed away September 2019. I often played bingo with the residents in the afternoon, and your mom was always there to play. Sometimes we sat at the same table, and I would occasionally help her with her cards. I called her the “pretty lady”, and I imagine she was as beautiful as a young woman as she was in her later years.
