The family would like to thank the staff at Mountain Ridge Wellness Center and the staff at Autumn Care for the excellent care they provided for the past few years. Additionally, we would like to thank hospice at CarePartners, especially Nurse Tonia Harris, for her grace and compassion in Nana’s final days.
