To the Editor:

On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly express out sincere thanks.

We recently lost our wonderful wife and mother to Alzheimer's disease after a 13-month stay at the Candlewood Valley Health and Rehabilitation Center.

We can't begin to say enough about the wonderful, care and treatment we al received there, especailly from the D unit staff.

From day one, Margie was treated by all as though she was their mother.

We, the family, honesy believes Margie was halfway to heaven with the love, caring and tenderness she was shown at that time.

God bless you all.

Paul V. Hulton
