Service Program


I got to know Verda when I worked in Hudson and later at Alcester Care & Rehab. I have several of her Christmas decorations that she made. The red cardinal stays up all year round. I always got a kick out of visiting with her. It was hard to see her slow down over the years. God just got another angel.

I will dearly miss Verda. She was a wonderful person. It won't be the same without her at ACRC. My condolences to her family.
