Petrolia second graders came to Henrietta Care Center at 1 p.m. on Dec. 13. Words cannot express how grateful the residents and staff are to have such a wonderful group of children at our facility. They sang Christmas carols, passed out handmade ornaments for the residents, and generously gave each resident a hug and a wish for a merry Christmas. We all had such a great time at this joyous event. All the residents enjoyed the well-behaved children, and they loved hugging the children and spending time together. We hope this is not the last visit we receive from this class, and we also would love to see other children from schools in Clay County. We would like to extend a special thank you to the second grade children as well as the teachers and staff that made this visit possible. The hugs that he residents and staff received from the children will last forever in our hearts.
Joy’s Children’s Group will be here the 18th, and we are all looking forward to this group of children visiting us.
We would like to thank Lavita Barrett for the baklava in memory of Berma Thomas. We appreciate you, and we are very fortunate to have had such a loving, caring family member who supported her mother while she was in our care. We know you miss her dearly, and we hope that God will continue to comfort you.
