From Lynn and Mary Beckman family and Shirley and Richard Lipscomb family.
“Thank you so much for your gift of the Peace Lily live plant that you sent to my mother’s viewing and funeral service. It is beautiful and a cherished reminder of her new life eternal in Heaven. Don, a very special “thank you” for your visit to the funeral home Friday afternoon. Your presence and caring words were a comfort and a spiritual lift. As a family, we wish to thank the whole staff, board and management at Cortland for your excellence in your programs of care and service. While there (4 years), my mother received exceptional care which surely aided her in overcoming many health issues and prolonged her life to be with us much longer than may have been otherwise. Also, thank you for accommodating our family during our visits, calls, special occasions and celebrations. As you ministered to our Mother/Grandma, you ministered to each of us. God bless and thanks again.”

From Ben W. Harvey
“Please express my heartfelt gratitude to the professional staff and management at Cortland Acres, as caregiver for my wife, Eleanor. She has been a resident of your dementia unit since August 2010. Her happiness and comfort will always be my number one priority and Cortland has exceeded my expectations.
I was grateful this Christmas that Santa Claus, with the help of your volunteers, delivered gifts to each resident. When asked by your staff if I had a good Christmas, my answer was “Wonderful and Complete”, due to the excellent care given to my wife at Cortland.
While I live about an hour away, I am able to visit twice per week, usually for almost four hours and partake of at least one meal with my wife. I also try to get to know as many residents and staff as possible in her unit, including other visitors. During good weather, we try to take one hour to sit in the beautiful garden and soak up some sun.
We had not planned to be separated for our “Golden Years”, but Cortland’s care and understanding of her condition, along with mine as caregiver, have been a Godsend.
Bless you and your staff at this holiday season.”

From the Teter Family
