We want to express our gratitude and thanks to the entire staff of MacGillivary Guest Home, for their love, care, and support to Mom and our family. She thought of you all as “one of her own”. 

We would also like to thank the EHS, ER staff, An Cala staff and Father Patrick who gently, respectfully, and lovingly prepared us and Mom for her reunion with Dad and Donna.
