You’ve been the meaning in our life
The destiny and purpose
The moments and the memories
We couldn’t do without
You’re the meaning in our life
And we’ll always be grateful
For you’ve shown us just by being you
What love is all about.
Heartfelt thanks to Art and Jeanie, through your love and devotion to Doreen’s care which enabled her to remain at home where she truly wanted to be.
And for all their special care and compassion, thank you to Dr.’s Craddock, McRitchie and Preston, countless emergency doctors, nurses and to Hospice Staff.
