A special thank you to Hospice Austin, HALO Senior Care and Brush Country Nursing and Rehabilitation for their care and support.

The little time I knew her she was always a gentle soul. Always saying " thank you".
She was a sweet angel on Earth.
Carol, we have many fond memories of your parents from Agua Dulce and the Methodist church. They were both very special people.
