Our family would like to thank the Nightingale Manor, Oram’s Bethesda Manor and Lakeside Homes for their care over the last ten years, for the last two years of Nellie’s life she was a resident at the Gander Long Term Care Home, and we are especially thankful for the wonderful care she received while living there.
