Special thank you to Meadow View Estates in Bonduel to the wonderful caretakers who so were kind and thoughtful in the past 5 years. Thank you to Theda Care in Shawano and Neenah, Theda Care Hospice and all the caring RN’s, LPN’s, CNA’s who took the time to be careful and caring to Doris whose answer to everything was “I’m ok”. She thanked everyone for any little thing they did. And always had some hilarious witticisms that had them telling us “she is just so sweet.” To which we responded, “Yes, she is”. Yet we also knew she could be spunky when necessary.
