The family wish to thank Dr. Venter and Dr. Hicks for their care and compassion. A huge thank you is extended to the staff of Rosewood Lodge Personal Care Home for their excellent care; Joanne truly was treated like royalty during her stay with them. A big thank you also to Joanne's visitors who were not sure that Joanne knew them, but still knew who she was.
I want to know, when day is done,
That life has been worth living -
That I have brought somebody joy
Through kind unselfish living.
I want to feel, when evening falls
And shadows quickly lengthen,
That I have made somebody glad,
Some weakness I have strengthened.
I want to know, that come what may,
I've left some cheer and gladness;
I want to feel, at close of day
I've banished someone's sadness.
I want to feel at close of day,
That someone's cares were lighter.
Because of kindness I have done,
May someone's life be brighter.
