Miss Lib was such a blessing. I enjoyed getting to talk with her while visiting my dad at NHC. Always had a book in her hand 🙂. She will be greatly missed. Prayers for the family ❤️

Lib, was a great person no matter what she was doing playing “golf” or playing “card” games. We all laughed a lot no matter what we were doing.
Rick, you were a great care giver and she was proud of you. I am glad my
Life and hers touched,
