She was very proud of her family and took every opportunity to present us to others.  She loved her care givers and spoke highly of all of them.  

We the family, would like to take this opportunity on Mary’s behalf to thank the staff at Valley View Villa, the V.O.N. Pictou County; and the staff of the Aberdeen Hospital ER and 4th and 5th floors, Dr. Jota and Dr. Elliott.  Your care was so appreciated.  Thank you for taking care of our Mom.
