Carmella, Rochelle, and Deidra...I wanted to let you know that I am incredibly sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I was an aide at Sunnyview when your parents came in, and helped to take care of them until I left in October of 2016. I thoroughly enjoyed your parents. I know they weren't the same parents that you grew up with, because of their illnesses, but please believe me when I tell you that they were very proud of the three of you. They talked about you all the time. I am thankful that I got to know your mother. She was an very spunky woman, yet she had a great deal of class about her. Your father is a wonderful man too, and he treated Bonita beautifully. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to know her. I will continue to pray for your family. God Bless.
