  1. Mrs. Bailiff it was a pleasure taking care of you I’m going miss our lil moments when we decided rather it was going to be a good or bad day. I enjoy hearing you talk about your children your grands and great grands I can only hope that they knew how how very much you loved them. I often came into your room and with eyes close you would be praying for them. and I would listen and then ease out. I miss you already I miss you the moment you left. I would be selfish to wish you back to this world of pain. you are free now and whole walking those streets of gold. Sleep easy my friend Sleep easy
