Elaine, Susan, and family, I am sorry to hear of Minnie's passing. Heaven is brighter because she is there for sure. I truly loved her and felt privileged to care for her and I got to know her and you. Prayers for each of you as I know you will miss her.

We loved Minnie and visited her often at Martha Franks until recently but because of the covid, and the safety of the residents, we were not permitted to enter the unit.
May you be blessed by many happy memories and God's constant and abiding presence to comfort during times of grief or loneliness.
