From the dear friend of Anna Z.

To all of the wonderful people at Medilodge and especially activities.

This has taken me almost a whole year to write, but you have all been in my prayers and thoughts all this past year. It will shortly be a year since my dear friend Anna passed away and it seems like yesterday. She is sorely missed in my family and especially by me; she was so much a part of my life for the last 20 years that she was in my care.

I want to thank you all for the joy you gave her for the time that she had with you. The first time she went to Prom she was so excited you would think she was going to her own wedding, and she never missed the opportunity to go every time she was asked. She loved the outdoor activities, and all the great friends she made there. I know it was upsetting for her not to be in her own place at Casa Maria, since that was the first time in her life that she was truly independent; but you all made her stay there the very best. She made lifelong friends both as roommates and especially in all the wonderful caregivers.

Anna did not have much all her life, living in the state home in Lapeer from the age of 16 and in the foster care from 29 thru about 65, but everywhere she went she met people that never forgot her, a sense of humor that could embarrass a sailor when she was happy; and your loving family to life her up when she was sad. Words will never be enough to say thank you for all that your staff in every department did for her.
