The family would like to thank the staff and caregivers at Lucy Corr in Chesterfield County for the love, comfort and care that they provided to Mom and Dad for the past few years. During the pandemic, they kept them safe and secure and allowed us to maintain communications with them even when we could not visit in person. These workers were angels of mercy during difficult times.
