A very special thank-you to Dr. Adrianna Schamp for her compassion and dedication to mom and her care, over many years. You always went above and beyond for mom. She loved you!

At mom’s age, she encountered many doctors/specialists, all of whom had mom’s best interests at heart. Thank-you for caring so much.

Also, to the Care Partner PSW’s, the CBI PSW’s and the Bayshore nurses, thank-you for assisting us in mom’s everyday needs. You were all so kind to her.

And from the bottom of our hearts, we are so thankful for mom’s kind, generous and supportive neighbours. You always made certain mom was okay. Love and hugs to Pam and Ron Dearing and Joanne, Ross and John Sirianni. You are the best!
