The family would like to take this time to thank the staff in Cottage #5 and the nurses at Hillside Village for their love and care of Dorothea for the 4 ½ years she was there. It truly was her home. She loved doing puzzles and had her special table there. Thank you also to Dr. DuPlessis and Dr. Bonthuys for their care of our mom.
