Condolence & Memory Journal

June and family, It was such an honor to get to know you and Raymond during his stay with my husband at Green Acres. They shared many life experiences since they both were veterans, firemen, and both ended up with dementia. I know that you will miss him terribly. My prayers are with you and your family as you grieve. I pray that you can find solace in knowing that he suffers no more and is in the most joyous place with other family and friends and with Jesus in heaven.... Love you. Sincerely, Nina Milliner
