            We ask that all visitors wear a mask to the visitation and graveside service.

            Special thanks to the young lady nurse at CHI St. Luke’s, that guided us to Jenny Horton, Jessica Byerly and eventually to Affinity Hospice Case Manager, Gale Snodgrass, who never quit trying to open other doors for us. To nurses, Russell, Nicole and Peggy, you each left a powerful impression on my mother and myself. Thank you, Ramiro Perez.
