We want you to know that we think you’re a wonderful mother. You gave us life and helped us make the most of it by giving us the confidence to be ourselves. You cheered when we succeeded, and you stood by us when we messed up. Through good times and hard times, you’ve been our shining example. You gave us caring and understanding. You gave us love- freely and unconditionally. You’ve given us all these things… but having you for a mom is the greatest gift of all.              -D. Walley

We would like to give special thanks to the nurses, CNAs, physical & speech therapists at Doctors Hospital of Laredo, Lydia & Vicky, nurses with Altus Hospice Care.
