Our Family wishes to Thank the Staff at Eden Care Home for their Compassionate Care of Mom over the last 5 years.Mom so loved her Family, and, tending to her flower gardens, and, her long time passion for sewing.
She requested rather than a Service, that the immediate Family spend a weekend together at her beloved Knouff Lake property at a later date to Celebrate her life. We are all going to miss Mom’s gentle smile and Loving ways. She has gone to be with Dad now. Each time we embrace a memory, we meet again with those we love……for the heart never forgets. Till we meet again.
