  1. It was a great honor to care for Ms. Evelyn Baker. I enjoyed every morning I got to spend with her. She always greeted me back with good morning. And a smile. That Thursday I will never forget. I was with her when she entered the facility and when she left the facility. I hold a special place for her in my heart with her blue eyes. Your family is held deeply in my prayers.
