To Mike, Kevin, Brian and Kent I send my prayers and condolences to you all. Your mother was a kind and sweet woman that loved you all. May she rest in peace. I will never forget her beautiful African violets she had on her window seals. She definitely had a green thumb and rightfully named June Rose. I’m very glad to have had her in my life.

It was a pleasure caring for June for the first part of my nursing career. A lot of times she would be so happy to see me and I was just so joyed to being a smile to her face when I would come in to see her. She was the best first patient I could’ve asked for.

From Annie Meier...
