I was blessed to take care of this beautiful woman as her nurse, but more than that i was able to pray with her and sing hymnals and just spend time with her along with my church group. My prayers are with the family and I know Mrs. Staten is in heaven rejoicing with the Lord right now smiling down on each of her loved ones. Mrs. Melba and Nina i was so blessed to be a part of your mother/grandmother's life. May God bless and keep you during this time.
Sincerely, Gena Entrekin
