    I work with Jessica. She is such a great nurse and so warm and friendly as a person. She spoke very fondly of her grandad. I am thinking of all of you.

    Margaret and Family,

    You are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort in the times you shared with each other.

  3. Ann Banks

    Margaret, My heart is with you. I am not able to come tonight and cannot come tomorrow cause the tests start on brain in the morning. I will be there in spirit with you and family.
    Frank is now at peace and I am happy for him. It is a sad time but I will always remember him as he used to be –on ball trips and our mountain trips. WE had lots of great times and I shall always remember him that way. Prayers for all of you.
    Love you
    Ann and Billy Banks
