Very fond memories of Ms. Goldie. She had a beautiful soul that lit up the room. There wasn't a day that went by that I didn't hear Goldie singing her hymns from her room in the nursing home. She had so many stories of her childhood that she would tell me. Selfless, she would do anything to help her fellow residents and the staff. To the family, I am honored to have taken care of Goldie and am so sorry to learn of her passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Bryan Gray, BSN, RN

Marybeth and family, What a great lady, neighbor and friend your mama was to us. She was all of that and more from the minute we move into 1201 East Oak. I have so many wonderful memories and will treasure them until we meet again and stir up a little fun or maybe Elderberry Wine! You all have our heartfelt sympathy. Love, Linda and Homer
