Friendly Visitor

Friendly Visitor, Rosalie and May

I feel so grateful and many blessings for the attention and caring enjoyment you give our mama. Thank you for your volunteer time with Legacy [Corps] Program. You both have added to mama’s circle of people she's so happy to see and be with. Thank you! Thank you! Some moments when I feel overwhelmed with stress or emotion, I reflect and look at pics you send and feel thankful and calmer. —Rose Y., Caregiver
