I'd like to thank:

- My husband was an angel and managed single parenting without hesitation so I could care for my mom while she cared for my dad. 

- Our neighbour who took care of my parents' garden, the lawn and ALL the shovelling through this incredibly long winter. And now that my dad is gone, he's still helping mom with all the outdoor repairs and upkeep. 

As they say, it takes a village. I'm so grateful that my mom has so many kind people to support and help her - enough to fill several villages!
