  1. Lynn, I am so sory to hear of your mom’s passing. I know how dedicated you were to her especially over these last years as her health has declined. She was so lucky to have you as her daughter! I hope you have very happy memories of time spent with your mom!

  2. I met your mother at Delmar over a year ago when my mom became a resident. Your mother was so kind and went out of her way to help my mother adjust to assisted living. They shared their meals together in the dining room. It was tough going in the beginning but your mother kept saying it will get better, it just takes time. She was right! I got to know Frances and had some great conversations through out the year with her. She was a kind, beautiful & gracious person. Delmar Gardens just won’t be the same. She will be greatly missed.. My mother, sister and I send our deepest condolences.
