I’m truly sorry for the loss of your Mother. I had the pleasure of meeting her at Hart Healthcare. She became my grandmother’s (Alice Postell) dearest friend there. She was a ray of sunshine and my family loved her. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for the loss of sweet Gail. She and I were friends when my mother (Virginis Collins) was at Hart Care. Gail and I would sit and talk on the porch while Mama was sitting outside. Everybody love Gail. She was so kind to everyone she met and was kind to all the Hart Care Residents. I will miss you and think of you every time I go by there. Rest in Peace, my friend.
