Mike, we are so sorry to hear about Mitsuko. I will always remember the fun we had when you brought her to our Christmas parties at work, and she played Chinese gift exchange with us. She always stole Carrie’s gift! You took such good care of her. May God bless you and your family. Take care.
Ann and family, we will truely miss Missy and her delightful smile and laugh at Pioneer Ridge. She would bring a smile to our faces. May good memories help you and your family through this time.
