“Your organization helped us out two years ago. I hope that your staff will see this message and recognize that their work, however painful and strenuous, is so worth it to people. You make an extraordinary difference in lives and I thank you so much. I will be grateful for the rest of my life, even if I don’t remember the names of all who were involved in the care of my family.”

“All in all, I believe you folks are sent by God as his angel’s to provide loving care to those in most need of mercy.  Always there to provide support to our Mom and to myself.  Especially the Tuesday evening when Mom struggled with pain and anxiety. The nurse came out to us very late in the evening to help me administer pain medication.  It was a very long night for me; but, with proper instructions from the nurse, my Mom was able to be comfortable and sleeping soundly by 2 am, the next morning.  It may have been stressful for me, but my Mom was pain free.  It truly was the best night of my life.  To be there for her as she was so many times raising six children and being able to help her and be there when she cried out; a night that will remain in my heart until it’s my time to go home to God.  Thank you.”

“Thanks to all that we came into contact with, you all helped immensely.”
