    I miss spending time with Shirley, Sandra and Marian (my mother) on the front porch of Old Jefferson Community Care. We sat outside in the winter and spring to see the seasons change by watching pretty birds fly, flowers bloom, and snowflakes falling a few times.

    My mother and I were blessed with friendship shortly after meeting Shirley and Sandra. We'll cherish those memories.

    Love,
    Linda Draper, and Marian White
