The children of Helen McHugh would like to thank our neighbors and friends for their many acts of kindness after the passing of our Mother on November 10, 2002.

We would like to extend a special Thank You to Dr. M. Shah for his care, concern and patience for many years and also to the staff at the Health Center and at Barnes Kasson Hospital and the staff and volunteers with the Meals on Wheels program.

The staff at the Agency of Aging, especially the home health care aides, are to be commended for the services they provided, as well as the services provided by the home care staff from Hospice Preferred Choice.

Last, but not least, we would like to extend our appreciation to Catherine Miller and the staff at Barnes-Kasson SNF for the warmth, compassion,

and care which they provide.

God saw her getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around her
And whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tear filled eyes we saw her suffer
And saw her fade away
Although we loved her dearly,
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard-working hands to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
Addie, Jon & Pat
