A special thank you to mom’s niece Susan Klodnicki and her husband Richard for accompanying her to appointments, and for being so giving of themselves and their time for the past several years, and to the wonderful and caring staff at Highgate Retirement Residence, Ancaster, where mom resided for many years. Thank you as well to the doctors and staff on the 4th floor CTU West Unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital for their care and compassion during a difficult time.
