The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to Providence Care Center and Denise Conley for their professionalism and loving care. The last few months with the lockdown due to Covid-19 was eased by the weekly FaceTime calls we were able to have and Patty was able to see her Great Granddaughter Grace on those calls and for our last weekly call she was able to see her Great Grandson, five day old, Grayson for the first time, this was the day she tested positive.
