I would like to thank all the staff at Northland Pointe, especially to the staff on the 3rd floor (Harbour Heights Wing) for all the care you gave Mom the last 7 years. You were there for her good days, and for her bad days. You were her family. I will never forget all the help, kindness and support you gave me after Mom’s passing. Thank you Uncle Bill and Auntie Gloria for your visits and now your support. A special thank you to Sandy Kendell for all the visits and Timmies you brought to Mom. You were a special friend to Mom. Thank you everyone…..Allan Swartz
