The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to her grandson Cory Theriot for the loving care he gave to mom and support he provided to the family and the care givers. We are truly blessed to have had Cory to help us understand and care for both mom and dad with any question or concern we had.
We would also like to thank Hope of Hospice for their support and care for mom during her last months of her life. They were truly a comfort and blessing to us. Last but not least her care givers. There were four ladies that gave mom their love and cared for her as if she was their mom. Julaine Dressel was her main caregiver for the last two and a half years of her life, and her other caregivers were Misty Melancon, Juanita Romero, and Cynthia Muffalotta. They were a blessing not only to mom but also to us as they took very good care of mom with love and compassion.
