    Mardell, you have my deepest sympathies for the loss of Betty. She was a wonderful lady and person and I really enjoyed taking care of her. Thank you for trusting me and the rest of the caregivers at Alta Vita to take care of your Mom. I hope you don’t mind, but the night she passed away; I went to see her and I did the sign of the cross on her and told her I’d say a prayer for her. I know she was/is Catholic too and hoped she would appreciate the gesture. I am going to miss her alot also. I also told her thank you for letting me take care of her and being a part of her life and I told her I loved her too. We all loved her.
