Time spent in nursing home.

Dear George,

I just found out that you loss you wonderful wife. I told my daughter about it and we were talking about how Cindy would brush her hair and fluff up her pillows.  She was one of the best room mate I could want while I was in there with my broken hips. I love that picture of her. She was one good looker.

Geroge you were so devoted to her by being there every day. Your one kind husband.  We kept saying we should go and see her again but we waiting to long.  She has always been in our thoughts.

She is with her God and suffering no more.  God bless you and stay safe.

Sincerely,      Loraine Laplante and Cynthia Boudreau.
