One Condolence for “ANDERSON Eva”

  1. Linda Elfring says:

    I was a nursing caregiver at the Raymond Long Term Hospital when your mother first came in. We had so many fun times together. I went to work at GSS when she moved there and we remained close. I left GSS two years ago because of health reasons. I can never put into words how honoured I was to care for her and to love her. She will always be I my heart.
    She will be perfect now with no more pain or afflictions and what a joyous time she will have.
