We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the staff at the Maritime Oddfellows Home, especially of the Special Care Unit, where mum was a resident for the last 7 years. Even as she got lost in time, the staff was so caring and truly loving. They encouraged her smiles and laughter, always made sure her hair was styled and her nails painted.
