"I'm thinking over the 7-1/2 years Mom was at Goodwill and am so grateful for this home. I think of when Goodwill was started ... and the vision they had for Goodwill, and I think how satisfied they would be if they knew the kind of life Mom had while a resident at this home. We as a family want to thank you for providing a facility where we as a family could get together with Mom and keep our family ties strong." "Her life was so much richer because of these family times such as Christmas, Birthdays, etc. Also, Mom's social life was so much richer because of all the activities and programs. She didn't want to miss anything." "Mom felt that she had many friends here at Goodwill and with all the community people coming in she could continue the friendships she formed before coming to Goodwill." - Elaine Yoder

To Dr. Beitzel, the nursing staff and nursing aides, housekeeping, laundry, maintenance, food preparers, and office staff, I couldn't have asked for more! To those who went the extra mile, and took time to stop and visit and keep him company, I'll never forget it. Thank you for any and all emotional support you gave to me and my family. Last but not least, thank you for the continued care and comfort you give to my mother."
