    To the family of Roma Anderson,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one.

    As an aide at Christian Park Village, I found Roma to be a very pleasant and appreciative resident. When she relocated to be closer to her daughter, her presence at the nursing home was missed.

    Do hold on to all the wonderful memories that you have of her and know that one day you may share those memories with her. Until then, her love remains with you here on earth.

    With Caring Thoughts and Prayers,

    “It is only for a while that we must part—so bless the memories within your heart.”
    I had the pleasure of working with Roma in the late 70’s. A nicer, more conscientious person would be very difficult to find. Besides Roma’s gentle nature, I really appreciated her sense of humor and competence. My sincere condolences to the entire family who have been so blessed to have such a mom and grandmother.
