The family would like to send a special thank you to St. Joseph Hospice, nurse Brandi, nursing aide Susan, social worker Shannon, and sitter Angela for the love and care they gave our mother. A thank you is not nearly enough for the wonderful, thoughtful, patient, and caring sitter Roberta Robichaux who has the patience of a saint and took exceptional care of our mother.
