Our heartfelt appreciation to the Layton Stake who ministered to Mom by offering religious services, activities, gifts... and included her in a church family when she most needed help, love, and comfort. We would like to acknowledge and thank the wonderful staff, and cute CNAs of Sunridge Assisted Living in Layton for the special attention, care, and patience she received as she struggled through the devastating toll that Alzheimer's took on her body and mind. They were special angels for our family during this time!
