Karen Barnett, LPN - May 22, 2010

Penny, all the family and friends:
I was so saddened to return to work today and hear that this wonderful person we all knew as Ivan was no longer with us. He was so sweet and such a clever person. I enjoyed his talents with his art work. I am so sorry and I know there is a huge void in the family today. Be assured that he is in your future and now abides in God’s care. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be one of his nurses at Crestwood Care Center. Praying for all of you at such a difficult time. May your wonderful memories and God’s comforting love sustain you now and in the days ahead.
