The Hale family extends our gratitude to the staff at the Orchard and Riverside Hospice for their attentiveness and loving care as well as her in-home caregivers during the years prior to entering the Orchard. She loved each one and you became so dear to her. We want to say thank you to friends and loved ones for your love, concern, and prayers, especially during the last few months of her life. Mom leaves us with these words, “I am 99 years old and ready to go. I have lived my life and I am going to a better place. Don’t cry for me.”
