Roses to the second floor staff at Retirement Concepts that oversaw the care of John Drift for the last three years.

You are angels.

Not only we as a family appreciate the care you gave to our dad (grandfather), but he also appreciated you.

Well, my neighbours are at it again.

Not satisfied with keeping my driveway and sidewalk clear of snow all winter, now they are mowing the lawn.

And then there is the one who always looks after my dog when I fall and break a bit of myself.

I’m sorry I can’t afford all the roses they deserve so I am sending baskets of sunflowers. Thank you so much.
